F5 Intros High-End ADC Offering

SEATTLE -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, today announced a new modular, bladed chassis hardware system, VIPRIONT. It is the industry's first Application Delivery Controller (ADC) that scales seamlessly with an organization's business-without sacrificing manageability or simplicity.
VIPRION enables organizations to deploy a flexible Application Delivery Network (ADN) right out of the box. Deploy the solution with one or two blades today, and as the infrastructure grows, VIPRION will grow with it.
One blade or four, VIPRION looks like one device to users, applications, and administrators, which allows organizations to scale their infrastructure while keeping management costs fixed.

With VIPRION, F5 is expanding its high-end ADC platform offerings to complement the award-winning BIG-IPR product family. No other ADC solution on the market can match VIPRION's on-demand scalability and performance.
With 36G of L7 throughput and 200,000 SSL transactions per second, VIPRION has a top-end performance 4 times greater than that of any competitive product on the market.

"When it comes to scaling and securing application delivery infrastructure, there can be too many moving parts to perform critical tasks efficiently and effectively," said Jon Oltsik, Senior Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "As a result of this situation, many organizations have no choice but to keep chipping in new technology and human resources on a piecemeal basis, but this strategy is expensive and results in diminishing returns over time.
With VIPRION, F5 is addressing these limitations by consolidating security and networking functionality, processing power, load balancing, and application delivery service virtualization into a shared, highly scalable chassis. VIPRION delivers a significant advancement, creating a new 'supercomputer' ADC category that few other vendors will be able to match."
