Setting up additional load balancing on ACE 4710

I recently deployed ACE 4710 to load balance traffic to a group of web servers. I would like to add additional server farm(s) with different applications on them to ACE 4710 for load balancing the traffic. How can I best achieve this goal? I currently use 3 interfaces out of 4 interfaces (Server Side interface, Client side interface, and Failover interface). Do I need to use my last interface to set up for the new VIP address for a new server farm? Is virtualized service a possible solution? Thank you in advance.

You can configure trunking so that multiple vlans can exist.

Also note that the vip ip address does not have to belong to a subnet.

You could configure a static route on the upstream router pointing the traffic for the new vip to the interface ip address.

Do you mean that I can add a new VIP address to an existing interface and configure a static route on the upstream router as suggested?
