Today many of the organizations have adopted F5 appliances for their IT operations. The number of F5 devices has been increasing in their environment and so managing these devices separately is becoming an administrative overhead which makes slow configuration deployments.
BIG-IQ enabled administrators to manage BIG-IP devices from a centralized location across the IT infrastructure. It discovers, manage and monitor all F5 devices whether these are virtual or physical boxes. BIG-IQ is a stand alone product available from F5.
