KEMP's Load Balancer – How easy is it?

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Today’s IT administrators and engineers are often pushed to do more and more, with less time and even less training. There is now an ever increasing trend towards admins having to posses a wider variety of skills. The disparate disciplines of network, storage and compute are becoming more of a necessary combined skill set for todays cloud and virtualisation bods. In pretty much the same way that there’s probably only 3 crew members who fully understand how the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) works, now it’s becoming the same in the world of IT.

This brings me onto the subject of load balancers. When I was in Barcelona for the VMworld 2014 event, I stopped by the Kemp stand to have a look at their latest offerings. (Click here to read the full review by Graham F. French of The Naked Cloud Guy.)
