KEMP Technologies has announced the availability of three new virtual load balancers — the Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) 200, 2000 and 5000, to the local market. These new virtual load balancers dramatically increases 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. 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 optimisation 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 virtualisation 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 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 centre for client requests.

* Optimised experience – application session affinity delivers users continuous to connections to the most appropriate endpoint to ensure an optimal user experience.

As a software-driven company, 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, executive VP 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 of Sales EMEA & Emerging Markets, KEMP

“The core infrastructure within operations across most industries and sectors within emerging markets has to attain a level of functionality to meet stringent performance demands. We understand the pressure
associated with building business and we know that virtual ADC technology definitely adds value,” says Zervos.

The VLM-200, VLM-2000 and VLM-5000 are currently available to download.
