Technology Partnership Pairs KEMP's Superior Load Balancing With 2X's ApplicationServer XG to Manage Large-Scale Traffic Reliability Across Virtual Data Centers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - KEMP Technologies today announces it is partnering with 2X Software, a global leader in virtual desktop and application delivery solutions, to provide 2X customers with an all-in-one solution for their virtual desktop and application delivery needs, enabling them to further expand their work loads and create a much larger environment than previously possible. In conjunction with 2X ApplicationServer XG, KEMP's LoadMasters, available as both hardware and as virtual appliances, deliver high performance and scalability for optimal data center performance that reduces infrastructure costs. The partnership expands KEMP's customer reach by providing KEMP access to 2X Software's global network of customers and will enable 2X customers, whether using Microsoft, Citrix or VMware-based applications, to aggressively scale out their remote desktop environments.

KEMP's virtual load balancers automatically and intelligently manage user traffic and applications to offer high performance and feature-rich solutions that provide optimal throughput for businesses of all sizes. The Virtual LoadMaster optimizes web infrastructure by delivering high availability, high performance, flexible scaling, ease of management and secure operation within hardware and virtual infrastructures. When customers use both the LoadMaster and ApplicationServer XG, they gain a better user experience and improved traffic management by expanding ApplicationServer XG's capabilities. With the LoadMaster, all traffic from a specific client can be directed to a specific ApplicationServer XG instance, to assure connectivity during transactions. Moreover, users can log on to virtual desktops with the assurance of 99.999 percent availability and adequate bandwidth to handle requests and application processing.

2X Software's product line includes the award winning 2X ApplicationServer XG, providing platform independent virtual desktop, application delivery and integrated thin client management from a single software package. It allows the delivery of virtual desktops and applications from a central location, providing continuous availability, resource-based traffic management and complete end-to-end network transparency for administrators. This enables vendor-independent virtual desktops for users on any device, accessible from anywhere. The results are significant savings on administration and support.

KEMP's VLM supports the broadest range of hypervisor platforms including VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Open Source Xen, Oracle Virtual Box, and KVM hypervisors with an identical set of high-performance features across all platforms.
