In my opinion, Cloudflare is well suited in all conditions when you need a managed DNS manager. It solves the problem with DNS Not Resolve when we often create a domain/subdomain (a software house would be like this), so we can deploy our apps as soon as possible to the client.

Kemp LoadMaster

Kemp LoadMaster is an awesome product in load balancing or reverse proxy scenarios for Microsoft Exchange, but it can be used for other services too like ADFS, NPS, custom web applications, RDS farms, etc. The pre-authentication features also allow MFA to be used with products that don't offer a native functionality.Kemp VLM, the virtual appliances, can be deployed and configured very quickly. I'd say, a Kemp VLM pair[ed] with HA for an Exchange deployment can be set up in 2 to 3 hours.The Kemp LM is not supported as a reverse proxy for ADFS, although it could be used as such. But it can load balance Microsoft's Web Application Proxy instead, which is the native Federation Services proxy.

Pros

Cloudflare

  • Security: Cloudflare keeps our website safe from DDoS attacks and other malicious traffic.
  • CDN: Cloudflare caches our website content, increasing our website's reliability and reducing server load. This saves on bandwidth costs from web servers.
  • Registrar: We can migrate domains to Cloudflare, though they don't currently allow the purchase of new domain names. The benefit of this is cheaper renewal fees and fewer systems involved in managing our domains.

  • Where the LoadBalancer excels is the multiple levels at which you can load balance servers. We currently use layer 7 LB, but others are available as well.
  • I particularly like the ability for the LB to know when servers are down, and if all are offline then you can create a redirect to a static HTML page or some other destination that is more informative.
  • The ease in which a service can be created and deployed using already pre-canned templates makes it a very convenient setup process.

Cons

Cloudflare

  • There is a huge jump in price between the mid-tier and enterprise solutions which is hard to justify for smaller businesses, or companies owning many small businesses.
  • It is difficult to convert from a CNAME installation back to a DNS based one
  • Setting up page-level caching with web workers is counterintuitive for simple websites

Kemp LoadMaster

  • Ability to 'clone' existing Virtual Services for rapid deployment of similar ones.
  • A better API for ease of automation.
  • Simplification of Certificate management.
  • Better explanations of Kemp implementations of industry standard protocols like VRRP (or CARP)
  • More control over device factory reset configuration and forcibly breaking HA pairs at boot time

While there are some parts of the service that can be tricky to implement if you have a very custom site, like holepunching for cache, for the most part, the service works very well out of the box and is easy to use

Kemp makes it very easy to setup, configure and manage the LoadMaster without needing a lot of help from their engineers. The interface is very easy to understand and intuitive to use. We like how it is not complicated - I can easily have one of my techs login and they can figure out how to setup/configure virtual services for load balancing without needing a manual or tech support.

We rarely have to call in, most issues are user error. When we do have an issue we can hop on chat or the forum to figure out why something is not working as it should. We do see the occasional issue when a hosting account is upgraded, you have to make sure you reset the DNS to the new hosting account, IP address tend to change

Support has been easy to deal with; I have only need[ed] to contact them a few times during setup.Once its been in place and operational, we have not need[ed] to mess with the system [which] is a huge advantage. I like system[s] that do not break and require constant attention in a production environment.

Alternatives Considered

Cloudflare

CloudFlare has Incapsula beat in terms of ease of use and features for their lower level plans. Incapsula only allows API use on their Enterprise plan where-as CloudFlare allows it on all plans. Both great options, but CloudFlare is by far my preferred service.

Kemp LoadMaster

We chose Kemp LoadMaster because it is 1/10 the price of the competition and MUCH easier to deploy and configure and WORKS. We have had ZERO issues with the product since installation. Their engineers and their sales team have both reached out post-install to check in and see if everything is working as expected.

Return on Investment

Cloudflare

  • The specific ROI impact for the products we use from Cloudflare is hardly directly measurable, however the costs of suffering an attack for not having DDoS protection are exponentially higher.
  • Since the implementation of a CDN, we have seen our users' stay time increased by more than 30% in the last year.
  • The impact of using Cloudflare compared to the previous provider of the same services has generated us small financial savings, by having the same service for a lower cost.

Kemp LoadMaster

  • Stability from 2017 much improved over earlier years.
  • 2015 & 2016 the system caused more downtime than it resolved. 2017 downtime was improved by the system
  • Some issues, particularly with our simple (relatively) Exchange and network configuration ended up being very complex and difficult to resolve. Allow plenty of support time and insist on detailed failure analysis from he suppliers.
  • When running stability performs well.
