More Information

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.

Each F5

®

VIPRION

®

VIPRION blades can be added or removed without disruption. For more processing power, simply add a blade. 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.

Increase Intelligence, Not Operating Costs

As your growing infrastructure requires more processing power for layer 4 and 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 data center.

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.

• Hardware compression—Enables you to cost effectively offload traffic compression processing from your servers. Improves page load times and reduces bandwidth utilization.

• OneConnect ™ connection pooling—Aggregates millions of TCP requests into hundreds of server-side connections. Increases server capacity and ensures requests are handled efficiently by the back-end system.

Maximize Large-Scale Application and Firewall Performance

With its industry-leading layer 4/7 throughput, connection processing, and SSL performance,

VIPRION can manage the most demanding applications, offload the servers, and consolidate the Application Delivery Network. In addition, as an ICSA certified firewall solution, BIG-IP ®

Local Traffic Manager ™ on VIPRION provides native, high performance network firewall services to protect public facing websites and data center applications from distributed, multi-layer cyber attacks.

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.

The Advantages of VIPRION Technology

With VIPRION, your organization will benefit from the unique F5 ScaleN architecture and patented hardware and software innovations that offer unmatched capabilities.

The F5 ScaleN architecture provides you with the ability to scale performance on demand, virtualize, or horizontally cluster multiple VIPRION chassis, creating an elastic Application

Delivery Networking infrastructure that can efficiently adapt as your business needs change.

Device and Application Service

Clustering provides true scale out of BIG-IP devices, automatic configuration syncing, and failover of specific application workloads in an active N+1 device cluster.

On-demand scaling improves performance

Increase resource capacity and performance with on-demand scaling, where you can simply add more power to your existing infrastructure instead of adding more devices.

VIPRION chassis provide true linear scalability through modular blades that use Clustered

Multiprocessing (CMP ® ) technology. As blades are added, their CPU resources, network interfaces, SSL, and compression processing power are all automatically available as the configurations and policies are copied to the new blades from the master blade.

Multi-tenant device virtualization enables isolation

F5 is able to virtualize Application Delivery Controller (ADC) services with a multi-tenant architecture that supports a variety of BIG-IP versions and product modules on a single device. Multi-tenant device virtualization is provided by F5’s unique Virtual Clustered

Multiprocessing (vCMP

®

) technology, which enables VIPRION to run multiple BIG-IP guest instances. Each BIG-IP guest instance looks and acts like a physical BIG-IP device, with a dedicated allocation of CPU, memory, and other resources.

Each vCMP guest can further be divided using multi-tenant features such as partitions and route domains, which can isolate configuration and networks on a per virtual domain basis.

Within each virtual domain, organizations can further isolate and secure configuration and policies by using a role-based access system for greater administrative control.

The ability to virtualize BIG-IP ADC services means providers and enterprise users can isolate based on BIG-IP version, enabling departmental or project-based tenancy as well as performance guarantees, while getting the benefits of managing a single, consolidated application delivery platform and increased utilization of VIPRION systems.

Horizontal clustering increases capacity

Increase capacity by adding BIG-IP resources through an all-active approach. With horizontal clustering, you can scale beyond the traditional device pair to eliminate the need for idle and costly standby resources. Horizontal clustering achieves this through two forms of horizontal scale: Application Service Clustering, which focuses on application scalability and high availability, and Device Service Clustering, designed to efficiently and seamlessly scale BIG-IP application delivery services.

Application Service Clustering delivers sub-second failover and comprehensive connection mirroring for a highly available cluster of up to eight devices at the application layer, providing highly available multi-tenant deployments. Workloads can be moved across a cluster of devices or virtual instances without interrupting other services and can be scaled to meet the business demand.

Device Service Clustering can synchronize full device configurations in an all-active deployment model, enabling consistent policy deployment and enforcement across devices up to 32 active nodes. This ensures a consistent device configuration that simplifies operations.

DATASHEET

VIPRION

Virtualized processing fabric shares the load across blades

Using custom disaggregation, high speed bridge FPGAs, and advanced software, VIPRION shares the processing load not just within a blade, but across the entire chassis.

The physical interfaces are fully meshed. 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 administrators, the

VIPRION 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

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 the F5 unique operating system 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.
