New York, N.Y.  – Kemp Technologies has been named one of the top vendors of 2012 by Redmond magazine, in its first-ever Third-Party All-Star award process. Kemp Technologies has been honored with this title based on overall technology, business success, product portfolio and contribution to the Microsoft ecosystem. Only 21 third-party solution providers made it on to this list by providing key Microsoft server offerings.

Redmond magazine recognized Kemp Technologies for offering its powerful, full-featured load-balancers to Microsoft Exchange shops. Kemp’s LoadMaster products are widely recognized as offering high-availability, high-performance, flexible scalability, security and ease of management. 

“In this special report, we pay tribute to the companies that innovate, take the risks, and invent the solutions that make it easier to deploy and manage core Microsoft technologies,” said Redmond editor in chief Doug Barney. “Kemp Technologies has prospered by offering its load-balancing appliances to Microsoft Exchange shops.  Kemp’s focus on market requirements has led it to be a key driver in the Microsoft world and Redmond’s Third-Party All-Stars reflects that accomplishment.”

“We’re working on a number of initiatives,” says executive vice president and co-founder Peter Melerud. “Kemp has most recently added global traffic management and load balancing to our GEO LoadMaster (GLM) which is known for improving various Microsoft workloads. Also, our new application delivery controllers (ADCs) now support the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor which helps customers accomplish load balancing without adding hardware. We are pleased that Redmond has taken note of Kemp’s low-cost and feature-rich family of products, which contribute to the company’s growing global success as the leader in cutting edge price-performing load balancing technology.”
