KEMP Technologies’ LoadMaster family of load balancer/application delivery controllers (ADCs) now supports the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor that is becoming increasingly popular in the cloud computing market.
Because KVM is based on the Linux operating system, the virtualization overhead is minimized, while maintaining a high level of performance for hosting providers. This latest announcement means that KEMP’s Virtual LoadMaster supports VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Open Source Xen and KVM hypervisors with an identical set of high-performance features across all platforms.
With KVM support, even more hosting providers can now implement full-function Layer-7 load balancing and leverage their hypervisor of choice without having to bring in a hardware load balancer or deploy a different hypervisor platform. KEMP’s load balancing products offer low-cost, high performance and feature-rich solutions that provide optimal throughput for businesses of all sizes. The LoadMaster family optimizes web infrastructure by delivering high-availability, flexible scaling, ease of management and secure operation.
Paul Luff, Sales manager, KEMP Technologies says, “KEMP’s experience in the load balancing market and working knowledge of hosting providers was the driving force in the decision to support the KVM platform. KEMP continues to keep partners in mind as we expand our global support and deliver on market requirements. KEMP’s support of KVM cements our position as the leader in cutting edge load balancing technology.”
