因为添加更多设备会增加复杂性，所以您需要简化系统管理的方法。这就是 BIG-IQ 集中式管理的用途。从许可到策略，从流量到安全性，您将可以从单一虚拟管理平台查看所有这些内容。
BIG-IQ tracks assets, manages policies, delivers analytics, and provides central reporting and licensing for the following F5 products:
BIG-IQ supports physical and virtual BIG-IP devices and the VIPRION platform. When combined with F5’s new per-app VE devices, BIG-IQ provides the management plane for BIG-IP Cloud Edition.
While BIG-IQ provides single pane-of-glass management of all your F5 solutions, it also delivers application-specific management. And together, BIG-IQ and per-app VEs form BIG-IP Cloud Edition—a new solution for enabling DevOps and application developers to manage their own network services. With BIG-IP Cloud Edition, the network administrator can empower the team to view the health and security of their application, modify network services, and even spin up or spin down virtual BIG-IP instances as their business needs change.
BIG-IQ does this through 4 key technologies:
Use standard roles or create custom ones to provide development teams with the tools they need to deliver applications.
Manage services with both big-picture and application-specific dashboards. You’ll see the health and performance of your applications at a glance, and if you see a problem, you can drill down to find and correct the bottleneck.
Use advanced analytics to automatically spin up or spin down VMware- or AWS-based BIG-IP instances on demand.
Create templates of a single device or of all the configuration settings specific to an application. Use them to manually or automatically roll out new applications or additional devices for existing apps. Templates are configurable and can be assigned to user roles.
企业管理器显著降低了管理运行 TMOS 11.4 和更低版本的 BIG-IP 设备的成本及复杂性。在系统的单一虚拟管理平台视图中，您可以优化应用性能以及自动执行常见任务。它还提供了虚拟版本，以方便无缝过渡到 BIG-IQ 集中式管理的未来版本。
