KEMP Technologies announced that its GEO LoadMaster (GLM) has achieved multi-data center site resilience and global load balancing. The latest offering from KEMP has been designed to ensure robust failover and failback support to the best performing and available data center, enabling optimized load balanced applications.
Any time service is disrupted or site disaster occurs, responses to DNS queries both for single and multiple FQDNs are generated automatically. These responses are based on pre-defined policies, ensuring minimized impact and need for manual intervention.
"We know businesses need high-level performance of Web-based applications as they expand across multiple geographic regions and multiple data centers,” said Jonathan Braunhut, chief scientist at KEMP Technologies. “This technology is clearly the next step to best serve customers of all sizes. For those customers that are using Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange, a wholesale site failure requires technical expertise to perform the failover successfully and restore service before problems occur and productivity is lost.”
“With our GLM's site resiliency feature, server availability is automatically restored without requiring additional technical expertise, complementing ongoing problem-solving efforts of the IT staff," he added.
The GLM can also enhance the end-user experience as it optimizes the delivery of user traffic to geographically dispersed data centers by making use of algorithms that are either regional or location-based.
The GEO LoadMaster maps traffic patterns spanning multiple data center locations and makes distribution adjustments accordingly.
Developed as affordable and high-performance solutions, KEMP load balancers provide an optimized level of throughput for businesses. The GLM appliance essentially provides an additional tier to the resiliency and reliability in a highly affordable manner. The globally available GLM solution from KEMP comes with a free first-year hardware maintenance and support agreement.
A complete production version can be obtained for evaluation at the company’s official website.
