VIPRION The On-Demand Application Delivery Controller

VIPRION The On-Demand Application Delivery Controller
The On-Demand Application Delivery Controller
Your organization’s growing infrastructure puts more pressure on the
network—from rising numbers of users to data center consolidation to
the deployment of more feature-rich applications. Scaling the Application
Delivery Network (ADN) to meet these evolving needs means increased
operational cost and complexity. The resulting strain on resources can limit
your organization’s ability to react quickly to developing needs.
VIPRION™ is a single, powerful Application Delivery Controller (ADC) with
modular performance blades you can add or remove with no disruption
to your applications. Instead of adding more devices in the network and
segmenting applications, you can simply add more power to your existing
infrastructure as needs arise. VIPRION gives you the scalability you need to
establish a solid and sustainable ADN growth strategy.
Key Benefits:
On-Demand Intelligence – Add
applications intelligence without
reconfiguring the network or the
application—and without increasing
operating costs.
High Performance – Manage the most
demanding applications with industryleading layer 7 connection management
and SSL processing power.
Device Consolidation – Reduce the
number of servers and Application
Delivery Controllers along with power,
space, cooling, and management
Ultimate Reliability – Take the ADN
infrastructure from highly available to
always available with redundancy at both
the chassis and blade levels.
Increase Intelligence, Not Operating Costs
As your growing infrastructure requires more processing power for layer 7 processing,
SSL, compression, and more, you can simply add a blade to the VIPRION chassis and it will
start processing traffic automatically. Whether you’re using one blade or four, VIPRION
remains one device with fixed management costs.
Simplify Your Network
VIPRION can help you simplify your network by offloading servers and consolidating
devices, saving management costs as well as power, space, and cooling in the datacenter.
With VIPRION’s massive performance and scalability, you can reduce the number
of Application Delivery Controllers you need to deliver even the most demanding
applications. By offloading computationally intense processes, VIPRION can significantly
reduce the number of application servers needed. VIPRION includes:
SSL hardware acceleration – Offloads costly SSL encryption. Accelerates key exchange
and bulk encryption to provide best-in-market SSL performance capable of 9 Gbps
throughput and more than 50,000 TPS per blade.
HTTP compression – Enables you to cost effectively offload traffic compression processing
from your servers. Improves page load times and reduces bandwidth utilization with up
to 4.5 Gbps throughput per blade.
OneConnect™ connection pooling – Aggregates millions of TCP requests into hundreds
of server-side connections. Increases server capacity by up to 60 percent and ensures
requests are handled efficiently by the back-end system.
Maximize Large-Scale Application Performance
With its industry-leading layer 7 and SSL performance, VIPRION can manage the most
demanding applications, offload the servers, and consolidate the Application Delivery
Network. A fully loaded VIPRION system with four blades delivers performance that is
orders of magnitude greater than anything else you will find on the market.
Massive Application
A VIPRION system with four blades
• 1
million layer 4 connections
per second
Achieve Ultimate Reliability
In a VIPRION system with multiple blades, you can remove a blade without disruption.
The other blades will instantly take over the processing load. You can also deploy
VIPRION in an active/standby configuration to add another level of redundancy. The
chassis is built with redundant power supplies and field swappable components. This
multi-layered redundancy significantly reduces the possibility of downtime.
• 3
6 Gbps of layer 4 or layer 7
• 3.2 million layer 7 requests per second
• 200,000 SSL transactions per second
VIPRION Performance Blades
can be added or removed
without disruption. For more
processing power, simply add
a blade and it starts processing
traffic automatically. In a
VIPRION system with multiple
blades, you can remove a blade
and the others instantly take
over the processing load.
The VIPRION chassis has field replaceable parts and redundant power supplies, significantly reducing the possibility of downtime.
The Advantages of VIPRION Technology
With VIPRION, your organization will benefit from several patented hardware and
software innovations that offer unmatched capabilities.
Clustered Multiprocessing Eliminates Disruptions
Each VIPRION Performance Blade 100 has four processor cores, and the VIPRION chassis
can support up to four blades. Using clustered multiprocessing, VIPRION creates a
virtualized processing fabric to efficiently use these resources. When you add a new
blade, the four additional processor cores seamlessly join the system. In the unlikely event
of a failure, you can remove the blade from the system without disruption.

Virtualized Processing Fabric Shares the Load Across Blades
Using custom disaggregation ASICs and advanced software, VIPRION shares the
processing load not just within a blade, but across the entire chassis.
The physical interfaces are fully meshed. Each VIPRION Performance Blade has 22 Ethernet
ports: eight copper, twelve 1G fiber, and two 10G fiber. Any port on any blade can be used
for any application so the system can be wired for redundancy and simplicity.
Clustered Management Cuts Administration Time
Spend less time managing your Application Delivery Network. To VIPRION administrators,
the unit looks like a single Application Delivery Controller. One blade is automatically
selected as the “primary” and all settings and controls are mirrored to the other blades.
When a new blade is plugged in, it will install the firmware version from the primary
blade, copy all of its settings, and begin processing traffic within minutes.
SuperVIP Simplifies the Network
Rather than requiring that a single, demanding application be segmented, VIPRION uses
the new SuperVIP™. This is a virtual IP that can span multiple blades within the VIPRION
system. A demanding application will use SuperVIP to harness the processing power of all
the blades in the system.
TMOS Delivers Performance and Flexibility
At the heart of VIPRION is a revolutionary architecture called TMOS™ that provides a
unified system for optimal application delivery, giving you total vision, flexibility, and
control across all services. TMOS empowers VIPRION to intelligently adapt to the diverse
and evolving requirements of applications and networks.
