We are using Kemp LoadMaster within our organization in different departments for different products running highly available infrastructure and requiring significant scaling. We moved from a well-known but smaller and free open-source project to something more enterprise-grade, professional, and potentially even more reliable. We are happy with Kemp LoadMaster's deployment process that felt logical and didn't have any surprises. We were able to create a HA configuration with the tool without any help, consultation, or even manuals, which always tells a great story about a good UI.

My company is using Kemp Loadmaster as load balancer for Exchange deployments, ADFS infrastructure and also for webserver farms with custom applications. Additionally, the reverse proxy feature with pre-authentication is used in some setups. We are a consulting/hosting company and have many customers using Kemp technology.

We use Kemp [LoadMaster] to balance our Exchange servers and VMware Horizon connection servers. Kemp [LoadMaster] enables us to disengage a server from the available server pool so that we can do maintenance on individual servers while maintaining services to our users. Not having to schedule a maintenance window has really helped our flexibility with patching during the recent zero-day Exchange vulnerabilities this year.

We use Kemp LoadMaster across multiple organizations to load balance mail servers, web servers, and mobile applications. It addresses the problem of speed, reliability, load balancing, sandboxing, and no-downtime servicing. The product itself is self managed and quite robust. The VM version of the product consumes the bare minimum of CPU and memory, without even blinking with 2,000 concurrent connections at the same time (as an example). The product has enabled us to innovate and enhance our current technological landscape without worrying about adding a new infrastructure to support these innovative measures.

Our primary requirement is load balance and protect the exchange active sync and OWA requests. We were using Microsoft TMG server previously for proxy server to protect our exchange server. We recently decided to upgrade exchange server, but MS TMG server support has expired. I was looking for a solution that can provide similar solution as TMG server. While I was talking to a consultant, they recommended Kemp load balancer. On top of proxy server, I also configured Exchange with DAG, so we needed load balancing as well. We are using it for whole corporation, and it provides the business continuity.

Our Kemp LoadMasters are being used as a High Availability Active/Passive Clustered Pair to load balance all On-Premises inbound SMTP traffic and email access across multiple protocols (ActiveSync, Webmail, etc.).
It's used for the entire organization's email.
It addresses the business problems of:
1. Having a single point of failure for email ingress.
2. Providing a simple, robust load balancing and mail routing solution.
3. Guarantees performance as a dedicated load balancer separate from shared load balancer equipment used for other business segments like web and application.

-UPDATED APRIL 2021-
After successfully upgrading from LM2400s to X3s and greatly leveraging Kemp Support throughout the process, with unique unforeseen issues that arose, Kemp Support very aggressively deployed their Support Experts to walk us through the cutover on multiple attempts until we were successful.

Kemp LoadMaster is being used by our whole organization to provide redundant and reliable load balancing to several different server applications. It addressed the need to allow access to 4 mail servers, 3 web servers, and 2 ADFS server by users and give IT the ability to run maintenance without blocking user access.

The Kemp LoadMaster is used for many purposes. As DNS load balancer, as WAF, as Web Application Proxy, and as Exchange security. It is used mainly in the hosting environment for our company and our customers.
It addresses security and redundancy problems. We are using a cluster of Azure Kemp LBs for DNS load balancing for a redundant data center connected with the internet. The LoadMaster is checking the ports and will just give an IP for an FQDN if the service behind this IP is online. We also use Kemp LoadMaster as a security gateway for our exchange servers, to reduce security breaches like the one in March 2021. And last but not least, we use it as a content switching instance, so we can use one web server for many websites or avoid folders behind the FQDN.

We have Kemp LoadMasters installed at multiple facilities. It is primarily used to balance the load on our application web servers for medical staff to access the systems. We utilize both load and location sensors to connect the doctor or other medical staff with the best / fastest web server available for their use.

The Kemp LoadMaster is being used by our entire organization to address inbound email balancing across multiple Microsoft Exchange servers. Before the LoadMaster, we relied on round robin which was not always fruitful and the Kemp LoadMaster has resolved this issue. It took less than 30 minutes to implement with ZERO issues! The ease of installation, the ease of configuration and the user friendly interface are EXCELLENT! Kemp's support has always been customer driven for success and picks up the phone within minutes.

We use the Kemp LoadMaster with our on-premise Exchange 2016 using two services on a DAG at different locations.
The Kemp LoadMaster load balancer allows us to have a hands-off failover between servers, either in a Disaster Recovery model or during upgrades for security patches or service pack updates for the Exchange software.

Our Kemp LoadMaster provides load balancing for our telecommunication services. It has worked flawlessly to provide crystal clear, reliable phone service for our institution. It is easy to manage, robust, and reliable. The support Kemp provides has been absolutely superlative. On the few occasions where we have required assistance, they have been terrific to work with and got us where we needed to be in no time at all.

We are currently utilizing Kemp LoadMaster to load balance our web shops and internal tools and have integrated it with various third-party tools such as Azure DevOps, Redis, and Kubernetes. While invisible, it is being utilized to manage traffic across the entire organization. I've used competing load balancers previously and Kemp LoadMaster is the simplest, most efficient load balancer I have used in my 25 years in the tech industry. It allows SSL acceleration as well as a great way to load balance via VS or SUBVS options. The way I'm able to consolidate environments into groups such as demo environments, test environments, and production environments with an at a glance view is indispensable. The cost is the best price on the market, in my opinion, and the support team I have access to is excellent.

We are using Kemp LoadMaster on the on-premises and cloud environments companywide. The product is not too robust, but it is serving out our need, and the support is exceptional. Thanks to the current size of the product, the fixes and features are implemented quite quickly.

Kemp LoadMaster is being used to provide load balancing and continuous service to our web and API servers. This allows us to provide redundant services to public and internal users wither we are handling a disaster recovery or just doing simple upgrades for security patches or service packet to our infrastructure.

We use our Kemp LoadMasters for a variety of applications including email, SharePoint, and Skype for all users. This applies to both internal and external traffic for these services. These LoadMasters enable us to take servers offline for maintenance and introduce replacement servers ad hoc. In addition these make it easier to add security rules such as disabling older cipher suites.

We use it primarily for load balancing in our Exchange environment (DAG) supporting all of our departments. KEMP has made that easy to manage by providing virtual services that can load balance workloads and provide redudancy.
