Develop Your Application, Control Your Network

As development teams and IT embrace collaborative app development (also known as DevOps) organizations have seen significant reward. To that end, F5’s LineRate Application Proxy gives DevOps even more power by allowing developers to access the data path via the Node.js environment, while enabling system administrators to maintain stability and control over the network.

Developer Friendly

LineRate Proxy scripting is based on the popular Node.js api, a popular and incredibly flexible language with a deep library of existing modules to appropriate for your own use. LineRate can be used to enforce parental controls for example, or intelligently insert ads into mobile apps. You could selectively redirect traffic for A/B testing or duplicate traffic to run through a test server. You are limited only by your imagination.
