The BIG-IP® WebAccelerator® system is a delivery solution designed to improve the speed at which users access your web applications (such as Microsoft® SharePoint, Microsoft® Outlook Web Access, BEA AquaLogic®, SAP® Portal, Oracle® Siebel CRM, Oracle® Portal, and others) and wide area network (WAN).
The WebAccelerator system does this through acceleration policy features that modify web browser behavior, as well as compresses and caches dynamic and static content, which decreases bandwidth usage and ensures that your users get the most quick and efficient access to your web applications and WAN. These processes, and deployment options, are discussed in the following sections.
The BIG-IP WebAccelerator system is one of several products that constitute the BIG-IP product family. All BIG-IP products run on the Traffic Management Operating System, commonly referred to as TMOS®. For an overview of the complete BIG-IP product offering, see the Introduction to the BIG-IP System chapter of the TMOS® Management Guide for BIG-IP® Systems.
