KEMP's New Virtual ADCs Offer Clear Alternative to Traditional Mid-Range Hardware Load Balancers & ADCs

New Virtual LoadMasters Provide Unprecedented Performance With Capacity for More Demanding Workloads

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - KEMP Technologies today announces the availability of three new virtual load balancers -- the Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) 200, 2000, and 5000. These new Virtual Load Balancers dramatically increase application performance enabling customers to deploy virtual ADCs 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 and opens the door for application administrators to self-serve for high availability and scalability. As the IT budget continues to move more toward the Line-of-Business (LOB), these virtual ADC enable administrators to be much more agile in deploying and managing key business critical applications.

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.

Key Highlights

  • 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 compelling 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 datacenter for client requests.
  • Optimized Experience: Session affinity delivers user's application connections to the most appropriate endpoint to ensure an optimal user experience.
