Load Balancer Solutions for Microsoft Exchange 2010

KEMP LoadMaster combines versatility with ease-of-use to speed deployment of the complete portfolio of advanced messaging applications and protocols used by Exchange 2010, including Outlook Web Access, Outlook Anywhere, ActiveSync, SMTP, POP3 and IMAP and RPC Client Access (Native MAPI). With built-in SSL acceleration and/or overlay, the LoadMaster offloads a key source of CPU drain to improve the capacity of Client Access Servers. Layer 7 healthchecking at the LoadMaster ensures that should one of the servers become inaccessible, the load balancer will take that server off-line, while automatically re-routing and reconnecting users to other functioning servers. Not quite ready to make the move to Exchange 2010? KEMP LoadMasters integrate seamlessly with earlier versions of Exchange as well. [more...]

Linux Load Balancing Solutions

While open source load balancing applications are respected by the Linux community few of its experts would recommend the use of these load balancers in a mission critical environment. [more...]

Cloud Load Balancing Solutions

Welcome to the hybrid-cloud where applications are hosted both internally and externally by public cloud providers. The way that hybrid cloud computing works requires that global load balancers are needed for intelligent traffic direction. When traffic is running at normal levels the global (geographic) load balancers, such as the KEMP Technologies GEO LoadMaster, direct traffic to dedicated optimized application servers, however when traffic spikes the Geo LoadMaster will direct this spillover to servers that can be located on public cloud providers servers. [more...]

SSL Acceleration & SSL Offload Solutions

Offloading SSL processes (key exchange, setup and teardown of SLL connections and bulk encryption), is an extremely computer-intensive operation and can take up a significant portion of a load balancer’s available hardware resources that may otherwise be allocated to handle its many other tasks (such as load balancing, health checking, content switching, persistence, etc…) [more...]

Application Delivery Optimization

ADCs are the next generation of load balancers, and are typically located between the firewall/router and the web server farm. An application delivery controller is a network device that helps sites direct user traffic to remove excess load from two or more servers. In addition to providing Layer 4 load balancing, ADCs can manage Layer 7 for content switching, and also provide SSL offload and acceleration. [more...]

Application Server Load Balancer – Load Balancing for App Developer

Existing middleware-based load balancing services do not adequately address several key requirements such as server-side transparency, centralized load balancing, support for stateless replication and load/health monitoring. This forces continuous re-development of application-specific load balancing services.  [more...]

IPv6 Address Load Balancing

June 6 2012 was international IPv6 day and this event was significant as it is recognition of the need for companies and organizations worldwide to have a plan prepared to handle the necessary adoption of IPv6. The need for an effective IPv6 transition policy is essential, however it is recognized that many IT departments are really struggling to create a working strategy that reduces the risk of disruption during the migration strategy.  The good news is that KEMP Technologies have already raised the flag to confirm all is ready to support a combination of IPv4 and IPv6  [more...]
