Plug and play Exchange 2010 load balancing for SMBs
The infrastructure of Microsoft Exchange 2010 – which was built around specialized servers – was designed to be scalable based on each company’s needs and business constraints. In the 2010 version, each server can be assigned one or more roles.
Designed for companies with less than 1,000 mailboxes, Aloha Load Balancer for Exchange is a great addition to this new architecture. It was designed to balance the load for the Exchange 2010 services most often used by SMBs: including management of client access to emails, calendars and contacts, access to public folders and email routing.
Quality and continuity of service for Exchange 2010
To guarantee high availability, Aloha Load Balancer for Exchange 2010 continually performs health checks on the Client Access Servers (CAS) and automatically switches traffic to another server when a server crashes.
Its features that analyze the service type (Outlook Anywhere, ActiveSync, MAPI, Outlook Web App, IMAP or POP3) regulate traffic between the various servers based on their load, the requested service and messaging application used.
Fast and simple configuration
Designed for SMBs, Aloha Load Balancer for Exchange 2010 is easy to install and configure. Available as a virtual appliance, it is compatible with all virtual hypervisors. The load balancer is configured using a simple form that sets up the IP addresses of the servers on which the load will be balanced, the Exchange services to be balanced and implementation or not of SSL acceleration.
