Virtual Application Load Balancing Tops 10Gbps With KEMP's Virtual LoadMaster

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/14 -- KEMP Technologies announced today the availability of its most powerful offering in the Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) series, the VLM-10G. This new Virtual Load Balancer is ideal for largest virtual infrastructures, giving enterprise customers the ability to scale with their applications and user count. This latest offering gives customer an option to deploy a virtual load balancer where hardware appliances were previously the only viable solution.

KEMP is the leader in application-centric load balancing and this new virtual solution solidifies this position by offering customers extended performance capabilities in a virtual package. As IT continues to transition to more cost effective software-defined data centers, the VLM-10G empowers administrators to be more agile in deployment and delivery of business-critical applications.

The VLM's high performance and capacity is capable of scaling up to 10Gbps throughput and 12,000 SSL transactions per second (TPS), while taking full advantage of the flexibility and elasticity of the underlying hypervisor it's deployed on with support for ESXi, Hyper-V, KVM, Xen and Oracle VirtualBox. Additionally, the VLM-10G performance profile will also be extended to KEMP's offerings for public cloud platforms including Microsoft Azure, VMware vCloud Hybrid Service and Amazon Web Services. As with the rest of KEMP's LoadMaster family, the VLM-10G offers a comprehensive and versatile set of features while enhancing the performance of deployed applications.

Key Highlights

  • Standard Features: 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.
  • Global Server Load Balancing (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.
  • High Performance: Scalability to 10Gbps throughput and 12,000 SSL TPS provides customers with a compelling virtual ADC alternative to mainstream hardware solutions.
  • Versatility: Supports the widest variety of platforms such as VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, KVM, and Oracle VirtualBox.

"With KEMP continuing to advance its software offerings, the introduction of the VLM-10G is a testament to the boundaries we are consistently seeking to push. KEMP's Virtual LoadMaster family is the industry standard for businesses seeking to deliver application services in virtualized environments," said Peter Melerud, co-founder and EVP of product management, KEMP Technologies. "The VLM-10G reinforces the forward moving standard at KEMP and enables businesses to deploy and take advantage of the software-defined data center."
