F5 Networks BIG-IP DNS improves the performance and availability of your global applications by sending users to the closest or best performing physical, virtual, or cloud environment. It also hyperscales and secures your DNS infrastructure from DDoS attacks and delivers a real-time DNSSEC solution that protects against hijacking attacks. F5 Networks BIG IP SDN DNS hyperscales up to 100 million responses per second (RPS) to manage rapid increases in DNS queries. With a set of features that includes multicore scalability, DNS Express, and IP Anycast integration, F5 Networks BIG-IP DNS handles millions of DNS queries, protects your business from DDoS attacks, and ensures top application performance for users. F5 Networks BIG-IP DNS delivers a real-time, signed DNSSEC query response and DNS firewall services for attack protection and mitigates complex threats by blocking access to malicious domains.
F5 Networks BIG-IP Link Controller manages links to distribute inbound and outbound traffic with greater efficiency and resiliency. Secure Web Gateway Services, when paired with F5 Networks BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM), allows you to keep your company connected without putting your network, applications, or data at risk. The F5 Networks BIG-IP platform is a smart evolution of Application Delivery Controller (ADC) technology. Solutions built on this platform are load balancers. And they’re full proxies that give visibility into, and the power to control — inspect and encrypt or decrypt all the traffic that passes through your network. F5 Networks BIG-IP software runs on F5 Networks BIG-IP or VIPRION hardware or as a virtual edition on a client-server. Hardware offers the greatest scalability, while virtual editions offer added deployment flexibility.
F5 Networks BIG-IP — Local Traffic Manager
Full proxy means full power. If you can see it, you can manipulate it. Because F5 Networks BIG-IP LTM is a full proxy, you can inspect, manage, and report on application traffic entering and exiting your network. From basic load balancing to complex traffic management decisions based on client, server, or application status, F5 Networks BIG-IP LTM gives you granular control over app traffic. Intelligent traffic management — emphasis on intelligent. F5 Networks BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) gives you a depth of understanding about your network’s application traffic and control over how it’s handled. It transforms the chaotic volume of network traffic into logically assembled streams of data, and then makes intelligent traffic management decisions, selecting the right destination based on server performance, security, and availability. Operational efficiency is provided. F5 Networks BIG-IP DNS can optimize the speed and reliability of your applications via both network and application layers.
F5 Networks TMOS And BIG-IP DNS
Underlying all F5 Networks BIG-IP hardware and software is F5 Networks proprietary operating system, F5 Networks TMOS, which provides unified intelligence, flexibility, and programmability. With its application control plane architecture, F5 Networks TMOS gives you control over the acceleration, security, and availability services your applications require. Applications can cue F5 Networks TMOS based devices to control traffic flow and maximize performance using the iControl API. You gain granular control over traffic going through F5 Networks devices using iRules, F5 Networks scripting language. iApps templates let you deploy and manage network services for specific applications. That translates into higher productivity, server consolidation, faster responses, and protected DNS management. F5 Networks BIG-IP DNS dramatically improves page load times and the user experience. Directs users to the best-performing data center to optimize app performance.
