Kemp launches load balancer virtual appliance

Offers Layer 7 content switching, application health checking and intrusion prevention

By CBR Staff Writer

Kemp Technologies has released a new virtual-appliance application delivery controller (ADC) Virtual LoadMaster (VLM), which it claims to offer the same functionality as the company’s hardware appliances while reducing operating costs.

The company claims that the new appliance removes the need to maintain hardware and reduces costs associated with power consumption, cooling, rack space constraints and other environmental dependencies of hardware-based appliances. It accelerates service provisioning and simplifies ongoing management.

According to Kemp, the new VLM offers the same management interface and functionality as Kemp’s hardware appliances, including Layer 7 content switching, application health checking, persistence, caching, compression, L7 intrusion prevention and SSL offloading. It reduces the cost of load balancing without sacrificing functionality.

Kemp said that the new offering is packaged for VMware ESX/ESXi versions 3.5 and 4, VSphere v4, VMware Server v2, VMware Fusion v3 and VMware Workstation v7.

Peter Melerud, co-founder and VP of product management at Kemp Technologies, said: We have designed the VLM to harness the full power of the VMware Hypervisor and as a result, the VLM can deliver high throughput levels without sacrificing functionality and performance required to support today’s most demanding applications.

“Unlike other vendors that primarily target their virtual ADC appliances towards development and evaluation purposes, Kemp’s VLM is designed for full commercial and business-critical production applications.
