NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2012 – Kemp Technologies today announced its plans to deliver the LoadMaster R320, a purpose-built, hardware load balancing and application delivery controller, the first platform to be released in partnership with Dell. The load balancer is based on the high performance variant of the Dell R320 server platform.
Many IT departments at medium-to-large enterprises realize the critical importance of application delivery controllers to assure the high availability and reliability of web-based business-critical applications. The LoadMaster R320 is designed to deliver on these requirements through the inclusion of the latest advancements in Layer 4 and 7 load balancing, content switching, SSL acceleration, Layer 7 content switching, caching, compression, IPS, IP and Layer 7 persistence. All Kemp’s load balancers are optimized for Microsoft Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, RDS and Dynamics. The LoadMaster R320 will also be optimized for other enterprise workloads from Oracle, Citrix, IBM and others.
“We are extremely excited to partner with Dell and leverage their global distribution and logistics capabilities. Kemp will leverage Dell’s high-quality global field service and depot capabilities to provide our customers enhanced response time, and service and support globally,” said Peter Melerud, EVP of Product Management at Kemp Technologies.
The LoadMaster R320 will be available in early Q1 2013 through Dell, and Kemp partners. Kemp will be at Dell World December 11-13, 2012 in booth #4E1.
