KEMP Cloud Load Balancer
High Availability and Resilience with KEMP’s Cloud Load Balancer
The deployment of cloud platforms and services is rising exponentially as businesses migrate to web-based applications and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) becomes ever more cost-effective.
The increased use of cloud services has led to a more mobile workforce with a boost in the use of geographically dispersed data centres. As a result, high availability and disaster recovery are now considered essential IT infrastructure components.
The use of a cloud load balancer has therefore also become necessary to maintain an uninterrupted user experience and ensure network traffic is distributed efficiently. Two of the largest cloud platforms – Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Service (AWS) – offer built-in basic load balancing service capabilities, but infrastructures requiring high availability, resilience and scalability necessitate a third-party cloud load balancer.
KEMP Technologies offers the perfect solution with application delivery controllers (ADC) for both platforms ¬– the LoadMaster for Azure and LoadMaster for AWS. The cloud load balancer for Azure was the first ADC designed to enhance the platform’s native capabilities by delivering true Layer 7 application delivery.
