September 16th, 2013 [Kemp] Kemp Announces First Full-featured, Layer 7 capable Application Delivery Controller for Windows Azure
New York, NY – September 16, 2013 – Kemp Technologies today announces the general availability of the Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) for Windows Azure. Kemp’s VLM is the first application delivery controller to meet the unique architectural challenges of Azure and to add the needed application-layer traffic management capabilities, which were previously not available. Adding Layer-7 load balancing to the Windows Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform enables high availability, persistence, health checking and scalability to production applications running in the Windows Azure Cloud.
- LoadMaster for Azure offers layer-7 application delivery that exceeds Azure’s built in load balancer.
- The LoadMaster for Azure is simple to provision within the Azure IaaS platform via the Azure management portal.
- The VLM-Azure runs on the Windows Azure IaaS platform rather than just directing traffic to the Azure network like other competitors solutions.
- Kemp’s load balancing products deliver high performance and feature-rich solutions that provide optimal throughput for enterprises.

As Microsoft continues to announce more enterprise services for Azure, application-aware load balancing within Azure will become increasingly vital for productivity in the cloud. We are proud to partner with Microsoft to provide the first Layer 7 load balancer to deliver high performance application availability to Azure users.”
