Enabling Application Delivery Visibility with Kemp Technologies and VMware

vRealize Operations Manager™ increases visibility for virtual infrastructure administrators across their entire infrastructure. Collection and analysis of performance data, anomaly correlation and root cause identification helps pinpoint and mitigate existing and potential performance problems. Its intelligent framework helps to deliver deep operational insights on the health, risk and efficiency of a virtual infrastructure and the applications that it supports enabling organizations to optimize performance, capacity scaling and configuration.

Application delivery and load balancing are critical services for the successful operation of virtualized application infrastructures. Kemp’s LoadMaster™ application load balancer comes in a variety of form factors including dedicated hardware, virtual appliances and bare metal software and is leveraged for the high availability and optimization of applications in over 11,000 customer deployments. Integration with vRealize Operations Manager now makes key performance, health and availability indicators of enterprise-wide deployed Kemp LoadMasters visible in vROps, enabling comprehensive monitoring and simplifying application related troubleshooting.

How Kemp’s LM Management Pack Extend vRealize Operations

The LoadMaster vROps management pack provides visibility into application performance metrics on deployed LoadMasters as well as the virtual machines that they are providing application delivery services for. This information provides virtual infrastructure administrators with additional data points to help address application performance issues and identify areas where resource allocation should be adjusted for optimal operations.

VMware Validated Integration with vRealize Operations

Kemp is an industry leader in software-based L4-7 application delivery technology and has maintained a laser focus on providing availability and performance for workloads in virtualized and hybrid cloud environments. This strategy, along with broad integration with VMware technologies has made LoadMaster the load balancer of choice in thousands of virtual private cloud customer deployments. Kemp’s VMware-validated integration with vROps further extends these capabilities and supports increased infrastructure operational visibility.

How It Works

Kemp’s vROps management pack enables discovery of deployed LoadMasters and communication with them via REST API. By inventorying their assets (virtual services, real servers, etc.) key LoadMaster-specific metrics can be gathered to identify the health of the overall environment and detect where performance issues may be developing.
