Hello Marieme

Do I need to create involved dedicated vlan of applications published?

Well this depends on how your network design looks. You can use the BIG-IP in a One-arm mode where your traffic will work in the following way:

Incoming Traffic

-> [Firewall] -> [BIG-IP] -> [Firewall] -> [Servers]

Return Traffic

-> [Servers] -> [Firewall] -> [BIG-IP] -> [Firewall]

In this case you are forced to use SNAT in order to translate the source IP address to one that is owned by the BIG-IP device.

So no, you're not forced to create additional VLANs and have the pool members directly attached to the BIG-IP.

How can I create specific partition on my BIG IP VE?

Also how can i configure HA for my cluster devices?

I hope this helps! :)
