KEMP Technologies, a provider of application-centric load balance solutions, asserted that its LoadMaster operating system (LMOS) is now available for use over any Cisco (News - Alert) UCS C-Series server.
According to KEMP, its LoadMaster OS for UCS is a Cisco IVT Certified (Interoperability Validation Testing) offering that provides application and server load balancing, high availability, security, workflow visibility and traffic acceleration and it is optimized to integrate directly into the high-performance UCS fabric leveraging its high performance compute, I/O and fabric infrastructure.
Users who have employed Cisco ACE solutions now have the option to implement KEMP’s LMOS for Cisco UCS C-Series Servers in their place. Users with KEMP’s LMOS will be able to maintain their established Cisco configuration and keep on managing their IT through means they are familiar with.
Iain Kenney (News - Alert), director of product management at KEMP Technologies, stated, “LoadMaster offers comprehensive options for customers migrating from the ACE product. Not only will former ACE customers achieve a seamless migration, but the scalability and high-performance qualities of KEMP's application delivery services provide an improved user experience. The newest certification strengthens our ongoing relationship with Cisco as we provide powerful, scalable application delivery controllers that handle the heavy workloads of enterprises.”
KEMP explained that the LMOS is the only ADC (News - Alert) and Load Balancer operating system to run natively within the UCS fabric – without requiring a server virtualization hypervisor which reduces response times and removes conventional latency issues. The LoadMaster for UCS is integrated with the same core advanced software features offered by the entire LoadMaster product line including L4/7 load balancing, L7 content switching, SSL offload, server and application health checking, IP and L7 persistence methods, content caching and compression and more.
Cisco Developer Network (CDN) members also have the option to avail a complementary product offering from KEMP and partner with Cisco to service their respective customers.
