BMW Group needed to ensure that all of their intranet and Internet sites were fast, available 24/7, and highly secure for employees and partners. BMW Group has three global data centers - one each in Munich, Asia, and the United States. The challenge was to reduce costs, to provide high availability for SAP-based applications and to improve performance for intranet and Internet sites. BMW Group uses F5's BIG-IP v9 application delivery networking solution. The specific model, a BIG-IP 6400, is a dual-processor unit capable of up to 220,000 Layer 4 requests per second, 75,000 Layer 7 requests per second and 15,000 SSL transactions per second, all while supporting up to eight million concurrent sessions.
