Hemel Hempstead, Herts, United Kingdom, 2012/09/25 - KEMP’s GEO LoadMaster delivers high availability of MS Exchange & web-based applications across multiple datacenters - KEMPTechnologies.com.
KEMP Technologies GEO LoadMaster (GLM) now offers global load balancing and site resilience across multiple datacentres. The KEMP GLM ensures that users seamlessly connect to the fastest performing and geographically closest datacentre for web-based applications such as Microsoft Exchange or e-commerce services to deliver optimal performance; and if one site goes down, traffic is diverted automatically to the failover site for guaranteed resilience.
The KEMP GEO Loadmaster enhances the end-user experience by distributing traffic to geographically dispersed datacenters through advanced regional or location-based load balancing algorithms that identify traffic patterns and distribute new traffic accordingly.
“With businesses needing high-level performance of web-based applications as they expand across multiple geographic regions and datacenters, this technology is the clear next step to best serve customers of all sizes,” says Jonathan Braunhut, Chief Scientist at KEMP Technologies. “For those customers using Microsoft Exchange, for example, a wholesale site failure requires technical expertise to restore the service before problems occur and productivity is lost. With our GLM’s site resiliency feature, server availability is automatically restored without requiring additional manual intervention.”
The KEMP GLM performs health checking of system resources and hosts based on configurable options before directing traffic to the best possible resource. In the event of a service disruption or site disaster, dynamic responses to DNS queries for single or multiple Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDNs) are automatically delivered based on defined policies in order to minimize impact and the need for manual intervention.
KEMP load balancers offer low-cost, high performance solutions that provide optimal throughput for businesses of all sizes. The GLM appliance adds yet another tier to the resiliency and reliability that KEMP’s LoadMaster products are known for, providing the maximum features at minimum cost. KEMP’s GLM is now available with the first year hardware maintenance and support agreement at no extra cost.
