YAPHANK, N.Y., May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMP Technologies today announced the availability of its new Virtual LoadMaster Exchange (VLM-Exchange) for Microsoft Hyper-V™. This product offering from KEMP was selected as a Microsoft Best of TechEd 2011 finalist by Penton Media's Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine, DevProConnections and SharePointPro, in the virtualization category. The new virtual appliance application delivery controller (ADC) is specifically designed for Microsoft Exchange 2010 running on Hyper-V machines, allowing businesses to easily establish high-availability and redundancy for Client Access Servers (CAS) and other critical Microsoft Exchange 2010 Server roles. The VLM-Exchange for MS Hyper-V ensures that a company's investment in Microsoft Hyper-V based server virtualization is further leveraged by turning its virtual machines into fully-featured, production-capable ADCs.
The VLM-Exchange for MS Hyper-V is the software-based solution of the recently launched LoadMaster-Exchange for Microsoft Exchange 2010. As with the hardware version, it includes features such as SSL offload, caching, compression, content switching and Exchange Server affinity (persistence). Moreover, advanced Exchange application health checking and the ability to be deployed in a redundant, active/hot-standby configuration ensure high availability of Microsoft Exchange 2010.
"For businesses running MS Exchange in a virtual environment, we recognize that they aren't necessarily familiar with load balancing technology and how to optimally deploy and configure its various features and options so we designed the VLM-Exchange to be simple and quickly deployed through pre-configured Virtual Services that are already optimized to support the most common Exchange 2010 Services," said Peter Melerud, vice president of product management at KEMP.
The VLM-Exchange for MS Hyper-V is preconfigured out-of-the-box for four virtual services supporting RPC Client Access, Hub/Edge/SMTP, and HTTPS-based services such as Outlook Web Access, Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync. The product has an intuitive, easy-to-use web-user interface for straightforward management and administration so it is easy to customize certain capabilities and traffic management policies for specific Exchange 2010 services.
The VLM-Exchange is currently available for shipping and has an MSRP of $2,990.00.
