F5 BIG-IP GTM with APM for Global Remote Access (BIG-IP 11.2+: GTM, APM)

This F5 deployment guide shows administrators how to configure the BIG-IP GTM and APM v11.2 and later to provide high availability and secure remote access to corporate resources from anywhere in the world. In this solution, the BIG-IP GTM intelligently directs traffic to the closest available branch office to the user. The BIG-IP APM uses one of several options to authenticate the user, and then creates a secure session between the user and the remote office.

This guide contains two ways of configuring this deployment, a high availability configuration, and a topology-based configuration.  Download the guide for specific information.

The following diagram shows the high availability configuration described in this deployment guide.
