The better Load Balancer choice

LoadMaster offers significant TCO savings compared to Citrix ADC and is supported by a team that regularly achieves 99% customer satisfaction rating.

Comparison of VLM-3000, VPX-3000 and F5-VE-3G over 3 years shows a saving of over 85%

Significant TCO Savings

Kemp LoadMaster provides all the features required at a significantly lower total cost of ownership. In some cases, it is even more cost effective to purchase a new LoadMaster than to renew Citrix ADC (NetScaler) support.

Simple Load Balancing of StoreFront Servers

In a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment, the Kemp LoadMaster sits at the edge (behind a firewall) and accepts connections from remote clients, load balancing connections across the available StoreFront servers. The LoadMaster manages the authentication to the external authentication systems such as Active Directory or RADIUS. When Storefront returns the ICA file to the client, LoadMaster intercepts and modifies the information with the appropriate load balanced VDI server information.
