F5 VIPRION Platform

Get the highest performing application delivery controller in the world.

Incredibly Flexible, Unbelievably Powerful—The Hardware You Need

Simplify your network

Simplify your network

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 significantly reduces the number of application servers you need, saving management costs as well as power, space, and cooling in the data center.

  • Hardware Acceleration - Offload SSL/elliptical curve cryptography (ECC) ciphers in hardware for fast efficient workloads, saving valuable software computation.
  • SSL Scale and Performance - Accelerate key exchange and bulk encryption for best-in-market SSL performance, and enhance perfect forward secrecy (PFS) capabilities by faster ECC.
  • Hardware Compression - Cost effectively offload traffic compression processing from your servers. Improves page load times and reduces bandwidth utilization.

Core Capabilities

Reduce deployment time with support for major private cloud stacks, including OpenStack, VMware, and Cisco.

Programmatic toolkits leverage customizable app templates, a JavaScript community, and over 250K+ node.js libraries.

Reduce cost of ownership by up to 53% compared to other ADC vendors.

Supports all major encryption methods, including emerging Forward Secrecy, for the fastest way to achieve A+ Grade SSL rating.

VIPRION Chassis and Blades

The F5 VIPRION platform empowers you to dynamically scale and adapt. Add blades without disrupting your apps or users, extending superior performance without adding devices to meet your requirements.

VIPRION 4800 chassis

Designed in-house, the 4800 chassis provides consolidation of ADC services with up to 48 vCMP instances. Add up to eight B4450 blades for maximum throughput, L7 RPS, and SSL performance.

VIPRION 4480 chassis

The NEBS-certified 4480 was designed with carrier-grade reliability in mind, with support for industry-first 40GbE and 100Gbe (QSFP28) ports, multi-tenant virtualization support, and the ability to add up to four B4450 blades to its chassis.

VIPRION 4450 blade

The purpose-built, NEBS-compliant VIPRION 4450 blade delivers two 100GbE ports and six 40GbE ports, increasing efficiency, throughput, and performance and providing 100GbE ports in QSFP28 form factor.

VIPRION 2400 chassis

A true pay-as-you-grow model, the 2400 chassis with four 2250 blades offers efficient on-demand L7, SSL, compression performance, and dynamic resource scaling.

VIPRION 2200 chassis

The 2200 is an appliance-size (2U) pay-as-you-grow ADC chassis. With support for up to two 2250 blades, this chassis provides efficient app services consolidation and dynamic resource scaling.

VIPRION 2250 blade

The purpose-built 2250 blade delivers four 40GbE ports and supports 48M concurrent connections with 80Gbps of L4 throughput. The 2250 blade delivers significant SSL and hardware performance.
