Overview: BIG-IQ Cloud

As a cloud provider, you use BIG-IQ™ Cloud to customize F5 iApps®, supplying your tenants with self-service access to resources, including networks, servers, storage, applications, and services. This enables you to create one configuration for multiple users, reducing setup time while ensuring the accuracy of complex traffic management configurations. Tenants can access these optimized resources without having to perform complicated network tasks.

BIG-IQ Cloud also easily integrates with public cloud service providers, like Amazon EC2 or VMware vShield. Depending on the application requirements and traffic volume, you can use your local cloud resources, public cloud resources, or a hybrid of both. In this way, you can easily expand and reallocate resource as needed, without requiring you purchase more equipment.
