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."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software. They hope to capture value from emerging technologies such as IoT, SDN, and AI. Ultimately, irrespective of the vertical, it is about deriving value from independent software applications participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridhar, founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, discussed how given the magnitude of today's application ...
The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
As you move to the cloud, your network should be efficient, secure, and easy to manage.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management.
