New LoadMaster™ Series scales to meet the needs of growing enterprises
18 May 2015: KEMP Technologies has announced a new family of high performance Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), enabling enterprise customers to easily scale up as their business application performance and security needs evolve.
The new LoadMaster 5000 Series targets medium to large enterprises with high transaction intranet and backend workflow applications, while the 8000 Series scales up to 30Gbps of application throughput and 30,000 SSL Transactions Per Second (TPS), to meet the needs of larger environments, service providers and web scale deployments. Both the 5000 and 8000 Series come standard with multiple 10Gb interfaces and are the only load balancers with native SDN adaptive traffic steering capabilities. This enables the KEMP LoadMaster™ to seamlessly integrate in software defined networks and provide optimal application quality of experience.
“We’ve engineered our LMOS – the ADC operating system driving our appliances – to take full advantage of the latest advancements in Intel® Xeon® processors, including increased core count and performance,” said Peter Melerud, Chief Marketing Officer for KEMP. “This allowed us to eliminate the use of proprietary FPGAs and reduce the dependency on custom ASICs to deliver ultra-high performance and scale for demanding application environments. These cost savings translate directly into significant reduction in TCA and TCO for our customers that require high performance Layer 7 load balancing, SSL encryption processing, high capacity IPS/IDS and Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities, which are all CPU-intensive tasks.”
KEMP LoadMaster™ is an advanced Layer 4-7 ADC with web application firewall and SDN functionality. Flexible deployment options are available on all major hypervisors and cloud platforms, as well as dedicated KEMP appliances and third-party, best-in-class ‘bare metal’ servers. LoadMaster™ provides enterprise application integration and acceleration services that intelligently accelerates and secure client traffic flows for optimized user experience in virtualized and hybrid cloud architectures.
