VIPRION 2400 Capacity On-Demand Scenario
Unexpected increase in application traffic load places stress on BIGIP capacity.

A new blade is added to chassis which automatically:
Validates the health of the new hardware components.
Images the blade with the current version of TMO/S.
Joins the blade into the chassis cluster.
Expands any striped guests into the newly available capacity.
Brings capacity online and begins directing new traffic flows to the new blade.

All without issuing a single command.
All without any impact to ongoing application traffic.
