Per-App Virtual Editions (VEs) provide Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Web Application Firewall (WAF) functionality for Azure hosted applications; delivering intelligent traffic management and robust security services on a 'per-app' basis. F5 Per-App VEs deliver the same scalable, secure and customizable market-leading services provided by traditional F5 physical and virtual ADCs—at a price and in a form factor appropriate for supporting individual apps. Each Per-App VE supports 1 VIP and up to 3 virtual servers.
F5 offers two Per App VE solutions:
BIG-IP LTM Per-App VE

Advanced WAF Per-App VE
