Scale Applications And Service Delivery Platforms On Demand

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, announced new VIPRION® solutions, including the 4480 chassis and 4300 performance blade. Extending F5’s portfolio of physical and virtual solutions, these new hardware offerings are specifically designed to help service providers and enterprises address rapidly increasing traffic levels and the growing demand for enhanced services. In addition, F5’s industry leading processing capabilities help organizations efficiently scale their infrastructures and seamlessly integrate security—including data center firewall and access solutions—without sacrificing performance or ease of management.

“To meet the evolving needs of our customers and the market at large, F5 is committed to offering a breadth of deployment options that help organizations efficiently scale their infrastructures,” said Karl Triebes, EVP of Product Development and CTO at F5. “By leveraging F5® hardware and virtual platforms with the company’s powerful clustered multiprocessing technologies, organizations remain flexible as they build out dynamic infrastructures—including cloud and virtualization technologies—to support business initiatives and user requirements. Unlike other vendors’ products, which can be difficult and costly to upgrade, F5’s VIPRION solutions automatically pool resources from separate blades as they’re added to help organizations implement a true ‘scale on demand’ strategy.”

F5’s VIPRION solutions enable organizations to stay ahead of user and infrastructure demands. The new products deliver a number of performance advantages when compared to other vendors’ Application Delivery Controller (ADC) offerings. Industry leading metrics and product highlights include :

  • 160 Gbps of L7 throughput, 2x competitors’ offerings
  • 80 Gbps of hardware compression for application acceleration, 4x competitors’ offerings

 

Enterprises and service providers currently face a number of challenges impacting application and services delivery, as well as user experience: increased bandwidth needs, demand to support rich applications, and ever-present requirements to scale efficiently and reduce operations costs. F5’s broad range of ADCs—including NEBS compliant solutions—provide a scalable platform that can easily combine optimization, traffic management, and security services as organizations grow and IT initiatives take shape. With F5’s new VIPRION products, customers can increase processing power by simply adding another performance blade, ensuring that additional capabilities can be supported without disrupting existing services.
