New VIPRION® 2200 and F5’s high performance services fabric support applications with on-demand scaling, consolidation, and resource flexibility without disruption
SEATTLE – F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) announced an addition to its VIPRION® product line. The new two-slot VIPRION 2200 chassis combines the capabilities of F5’s ScaleN™ and Clustered Multiprocessing™ to address all aspects of performance and scalability for organizations’ vital application services. With F5’s VIPRION offerings, customers report the ability to consolidate services and reduce costs even while supporting growth.
The new offering is ideal for midrange customers looking for the on-demand scalability of VIPRION but have rack space constraints—or related concerns such as power/cooling requirements—that require an appliance footprint. Providing unmatched performance in a 2U form factor, the VIPRION 2200 brings true pay-as-you-grow performance within reach for organizations seeking to bolster their infrastructures without sacrificing future flexibility. With the option of adding an extra blade to increase performance, the device offers easy scalability with no operational disruption. Customers can simply add more capacity as business needs grow.
Adding Device Resources to F5’s Elastic Services Fabric
First introduced in 2011, F5 pioneered ScaleN device service clusters (DSCs) to give customers the ability to align device resources in an all-active configuration, improving resource utilization compared to traditional active/passive high availability (HA) pairs. With F5’s virtual Clustered Multiprocessing (vCMP®) technology, the VIPRION chassis provides the highest density multi-tenant solution in its class to enable efficient consolidation of application services and underutilized ADCs. The new chassis can be deployed to extend a multi-tenant fabric of application resources. In line with this approach, F5’s hardware solutions elegantly integrate with the company’s virtual offerings to promote Software Defined Application Services™ that can be extended from the data center to the cloud.
Integrating with Powerful F5 Technologies for Added Value
The VIPRION 2200 chassis is also designed to take advantage of F5’s unified offerings, including:
Delivering Unmatched Performance and Scalability in its Class

“We see customers supporting a growing number of applications with a variety of physical, virtual, and cloud-based solutions,” said Karl Triebes, EVP of Product Development and CTO at F5. “With the 2200, organizations can add scalable processing power in an appliance form factor, while maintaining the ability to upgrade systems on demand. In addition, with ScaleN and the F5 Synthesis™ architecture model, customers choosing to deploy hardware and software together can easily combine resources from each within a unified services delivery fabric.”
