(Gawkwire.com) KEMP Technologies today announced the newest member of its family of affordable load balancers. The LoadMaster 2200 ensures that each user receives the best application experience possible by intelligently and efficiently distributing user traffic among web and application servers. Like all KEMP load balancers and application delivery controllers, the LoadMaster 2200 is a low-cost device delivering higher performance, optimal throughput and increased SSL acceleration.
Priced at $1,990 and including first-year support, KEMP Technologies continues to deliver the best-value load balancers in the industry. The need for load balancers is increasing because businesses cannot risk losing customers and revenue as a result of network downtime. E-commerce and virtualization demand high performance from network applications and organizations must maintain continuous uptime despite traffic spikes, network overload and external attacks. A load balancer enables reduced risk of failure, simplified management of network resources and optimized performance all while streamlining IT costs.
The LoadMaster 2200 features four GbE Ports, 950Mbps throughput and delivers up to 200 SSL TPS. With support for redundant, stateful configuration, it provides “five nines” high availability of application servers and removes the load balancer as a single point of failure. The LoadMaster 2200 includes advanced application acceleration features such as caching and compression, which optimize performance of existing ISP links and reduces latency associated with the internal network. It also offers protection against application-level threats, even with SSL-encrypted traffic. Moreover, the LoadMaster 2200 offers IT administrators greater control and enables them to adapt to network changes easily by providing a resource optimization layer in front of applications and servers.
“Today, businesses need to expand their server and application network architecture to handle rising bandwidth requirements and explore new revenue opportunities,” notes Peter Melerud, co-founder and VP of product management of KEMP Technologies. “At the same time, there is increased pressure on costs and the stress of handling issues associated with unforeseen traffic loads. KEMP Technologies provides what businesses need—the ability to load balance web and data server traffic without expensive equipment investment. Available today, the LoadMaster 2200 offers the functionality associated with much higher priced load balancers at a fraction of the cost.”
Like all appliances of the KEMP’s LoadMaster product family, the LoadMaster 2200 offers advanced Layer 7 content switching, application health checking, L7 persistence, caching, compression, L7 intrusion prevention and SSL offloading. A comprehensive first-year hardware maintenance and support agreement is included at no extra cost, which includes telephone and email support, software updates and advance hardware replacement.
