F5 BIG-IP VE: Cluster-Ready, 4-nic

Overview

This template deploys a “cluster-ready” pair of BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) devices. Each device has four (4) network interfaces: management, control, and two (2) data interfaces. The control interface (“HA”) allows connection failover traffic, configuration synchronization, and connection mirroring. Using a control interface allows for the separation of control traffic from client/user data.
