VIPRION The On-Demand Application Delivery Controller
Datasheet VIPRION VIPRION 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 requirements. 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 Performance A VIPRION system with four blades provides: • 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 throughput • 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.

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. Ordering Information The VIPRION chassis includes BIG-IP ® Local Traffic Manager™.
