Dell Builds Kemp Load Balancer in PowerEdge Server Frame
Kemp's LoadMaster R320 enables medium-to-large enterprises to obtain high availability and reliability of Web-based enterprise applications.Dell isn't all that well known for its white-box OEM business, but this is becoming more strategic as the company evolves into a full-service IT provider. On April 17, the Austin, Texas-based company's OEM Solutions unit and Kemp Technologies launched a new load balancing and application delivery controller that uses the framework of Dell's PowerEdge R320 server. The Kemp LoadMaster R320, which conveniently uses the same product number as the server, enables medium-to-large enterprises to obtain high availability and reliability of Web-based enterprise applications. Kemp was founded in 2000 and is based in Yaphank, N.Y. It specializes in providing Internet traffic management software, including load balancing, network monitoring, content switching and clustering. The LoadMaster R320 is the first Kemp platform to be delivered through Dell OEM Solutions.
It enables data center clusters powering Internet sites and large intranets to distribute network traffic among Web and application servers in an intelligent, efficient manner, the company said. A resource optimization layer in front of applications and infrastructure servers gives IT administrators full control to adapt to network changes and enable optimal network and infrastructure performance.
