BIG-IP devices have long been a tool for applying "rolling upgrades" to the applications and systems that sit behind the BIG-IP device.

Live Install also enables snapshot versioning for future versions of the BIG-IP system, a critical feature for both production and testing environments.
Journaling? RAID? Vaulting? Mirroring? High availability? Know your data protection and recovery options! Download this information-packed 29-page report that reviews the spectrum of IBM i (i5/OS) and AIX resilience and recovery technologies and best practices choices, including the latest, next-generation solutions.
For IT departments looking to bring their AIX environments up to the next step in data protection, IBM’s PowerHA (HACMP) connects multiple servers to shared storage via clustering. This offers automatic recovery of applications and system resources if a failure occurs with the primary server.
