Delivers load balancing, scalability and high availability in a Virtual Appliance for customers running Microsoft's Hyper-V server virtualization technology

Oct 19, 2010, 09:00 ET from KEMP Technologies

YAPHANK, N.Y., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMP Technologies today announced that its Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) now supports Hyper-V™ — the Microsoft hypervisor-based server virtualization technology.   KEMP's VLM is one of the first production-ready virtual-appliance application delivery controllers (ADC) to support Hyper-V.   As a full-featured ADC, KEMP's VLM can significantly improve performance, scalability and availability of applications running on Hyper-V virtual machines.  

By supporting Microsoft's Hyper-V, KEMP's VLM customers are positioned to better leverage the benefits of server virtualization.  The VLM can distribute user traffic across best-performing virtual machines and further optimize application access through included features such as SSL offload, caching, compression, content switching and Layer-7 persistence.  Advanced application health checking and the ability to be deployed in a redundant, active/hot-standby configuration ensures high availability of organization's business critical applications.  

Because the VLM is built on the same LoadMaster OS as KEMP's award-winning hardware appliances, it offers the same rich feature set, robust management and easy to use web-based user interface as the rest of the LoadMaster product family.  "A large number of our customers already use the LoadMaster to enable application delivery for Microsoft server-based products such as Exchange 2010, Sharepoint, OCS and Terminal Services," says Peter Melerud, KEMP co-founder and VP of product management.  "As our customers realize the benefits of virtual server environments powered by Hyper-V, KEMP is ensuring that their investment is further leveraged by turning Virtual Machines into fully-featured, production-capable ADCs."

The Hyper-V version of the Virtual LoadMaster is available immediately. Pricing starts at $1,490 and includes a first-year support agreement.  A free 30-day trial may be downloaded from KEMP's web site at
