A few weeks ago I blogged about a new search kid in town. Well, the F5 town is getting a little bit bigger every day!

You have have noticed our subtle blog posts these past few weeks. Lori kicked it off with her "Imagine" posts on Performance, Manageability, and Intelligence. And Jeff hinted at things to come with his post on Disruption.

Hopefully these have got you thinking...

Just as it was when BIG-IP v9.0 was introduced, The playing field has now changed. Performance issues are a thing of the past! Manageability is simple, intuitive and smart! The network is highly intelligent!

Enter VIPRION!

VIP-RI-ON [VIP-REE-ON]

-noun

  1. A chassis-based application delivery controller.
  2. Pretty darn fast.

VIPRION is a multi-blade chassis application delivery controller that is going to blow your socks off. It's modular design allows for starting small with a single blade (which is somewhat equivalent to our high end BIG-IPs). If you find you need to increase your capacity, just buy another blade and hot-plug it in and you are up and running with double the capacity. The ability start small and easily grow and scale to unmatched performance means that there's a little VIPRION for everyone out there.

Be on the lookout for an "Unboxing" video we shot as well as more blog posts and tech articles about just what this amazing piece of hardware intelligence can do for you and your applications!

There is going to be a lot of commentary on this revolutionary product. The only response I'm going to give is the following:

Despite how awesome other products claim to be, VIPRION is no 10-year old or video game version like the competitors, it's the real deal.

Sit back and be blown away!
