KEMP Technologies has introduced in the market, two new virtual load balancers; the Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) 200, 2000, and 5000, to the local market.
With these new Virtual Load Balancers, customers will have their application performance increased,enabling them to deploy virtual ADC’s with greater agility for workloads where hardware appliances were traditionally the only option.
Releasing these powerful virtual ADCs cements KEMP’s position as the leading application-centric ADC vendor.
The VLMs’ high performance is capable of scaling up to 5Gbps throughput and up to 10,000 SSL transactions per second (TPS), fully leveraging the network optimization capabilities of VM hypervisors and high performing x86 server platforms. The VLMs deliver the same comprehensive core feature set available in the entire LoadMaster family of ADCs while offering the flexibility of virtualization technology.
So what’s this about the balancer:
- Core Features: The VLM provides full Layer 7 ADC functionality including content switching, SSL offloading, application health checking, session affinity, caching, compression, intrusion prevention, pre-authentication and single sign-on.
- High Performance: Scalability to 5Gbps throughput and 10,000 SSL TPS provides customers with a viable virtual ADC alternative to mainstream hardware solutions.
- Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB): GSLB expands intelligent load balancing and application delivery beyond a single site to geographically dispersed locations via algorithms capable of selecting the best suited data center for client requests.
- Optimized Experience: Application session affinity delivers users continuous to connections to the most appropriate endpoint to ensure an optimal user experience.
“KEMP’s deep understanding of the application-centric market and ADC technology has led us to become a prevalent solution providing enterprise administrators with the flexibility and turnaround time needed to meet the needs of line of business applications,” says Peter Melerud, EVP of Product Management at KEMP Technologies. “KEMP’s focus on virtual-based solutions and ability to meet customer requirements regardless of platform has contributed to KEMP Technologies being the 3rd most shipped ADC in the world in Q2 2013.”
This international recognition translates into local value for operations that have to keep up with the changing dynamics of growing markets explains George Zervos, VP Sales EMEA & Emerging Markets, KEMP Technologies.
The VLM-200, VLM-2000 and VLM-5000 are currently available to download.
