For enhanced efficiency and performance, dynamic data centers needs contextual application delivery that can manage applications on access and network conditions. This need has been taken care of by F5 BIG-IP v10.1, on access and network conditions Application Delivery Controller (ADC) that provides sophisticated, integrated, contextual application management on a single platform. BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) running on the TMOS product platform was the first ADC released in 2004. With changing demands of fluid and dynamic data centers, simple load balancing and single-purpose appliances became obsolete. Today, applications have to move from physical to virtual platforms and from one data center to another. This movement can only be possible on an integrated platform through advanced contextual management. The F5 BIG-IP v10.1 is a modular architecture that can be used by IT departments to enhance the performance of most of their application delivery infrastructure. This will go a long way in reducing the capital and operational costs through the lifespan of the application. With the growing complexity of data centers and shrinking size, integration of services will become a critical component during planning and execution. Here again, F5 BIG-IP v10.1 comes to the rescue of IT departments and offers the level of integration that is needed to manage and control application delivery for users and services throughout the data center.
