F5 BIG-IP Virtual Edition (BYOL)

F5 Networks

The BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) is F5's application delivery services platform for the Azure cloud

BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) is the industry-leading application delivery and security services platform. From intelligent L4-L7 load balancing, traffic management, and service offloading to application access, acceleration, and security, BIG-IP VE consistently ensures your applications are fast, available, and secure.

Depending on your license, you can deploy the following modules:

LTM - Intelligent L4-L7 load balancing, SSL/TLS termination and offloading, health monitoring, connection state management, and programmatic control over application traffic with F5 iRules.

DNS - High-performance DNS services and global server load balancing.

AFM - Comprehensive multi-layered DDoS protection and network security.

APM - Secure, anytime, anywhere application access.

ASM - WAF protection against a breadth of application layer security threats, including L7 DDoS, bot attacks, and all OWASP top 10 attack types.

Advanced WAF – All capabilities of ASM, as well as bot mitigation for mobile apps, credential theft/abuse protection and behavioral analytics to block automated threats.

Choose an image with 2 boot locations if you expect to upgrade BIG-IP VE in the future. If you do not need room to upgrade (if you intend to create a new instance when a new version of BIG-IP VE is released), choose an image with 1 boot location.

Speed up and simplify your BIG-IP VE deployment by using a Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates from the F5 Networks GitHub Repository.

Annual support contracts may be purchased separately for BYOL offerings from F5 Technical Support Services.

F5 BIG-IP VE is also available for Azure Stack. See the link below for usage details.
