KEMP Announces the First Server Load Balancing Appliance, Specifically Designed for Microsoft Exchange 2010
KEMP’s LoadMaster Exchange comes pre-configured and ready to deploy for instant redundancy and high availability of critical Exchange 2010 services
Yaphank, N.Y. – April 5, 2011 – KEMP Technologies today announced the availability of its new LoadMaster Exchange (LM-Exchange) server load balancing and application delivery appliance. The newest member of its family of affordable load balancers, the KEMP LoadMaster Exchange is designed to address high-availability and scalability demands of Microsoft Exchange 2010 deployments for businesses up to 250 users.
While all of KEMP’s server load balancing and application delivery controller (ADCs) products currently support and are approved by Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2010 qualification program for hardware and software load balancers, the LM-Exchange is the first product of its kind that was specifically designed and purpose-built for Microsoft’s Exchange 2010. “For the smaller business that may not be familiar with load balancing technology, ease-of-use and speed of deployment was our top priority in the design and development of this product,” said Peter Melerud, vice president of product management at KEMP. “For the vast majority of smaller enterprises, which will consolidate the primary Exchange 2010 server roles onto a pair of servers, the LM-Exchange can be deployed in less than five minutes, providing instant redundancy and high-availability for client access server (CAS) and other critical Exchange 2010 services.”
The LM-Exchange supports up to 13 virtual services and six real (physical) servers. To simplify installation, the LM-Exchange is pre-configured and optimized for the most commonly deployed Exchange 2010 server roles. Moreover, the appliance is designed out-of-the-box to support Outlook Web Access, Outlook Anywhere and ActiveSync. The LM-Exchange will include all the key functionality that the typical Exchange 2010 deployment will require, including distribution of Exchange 2010 traffic load across and up to six servers, CAS server affinity (persistence), SSL offload and application service and server hardware health checking with automatic failover upon detection of outages. The LM-Exchange scales to support up to 250 Exchange 2010 users, with performance capacity of 920Mbps of layer-seven (L7) throughput, SSL offload of up to 200TPS and can support up to 25,000 L7 connections per second.
The LM-Exchange is currently available for shipping and has an MSRP of $1,590 including first-year hardware maintenance and support.
