  • Ease of use - configuration is simple and there are templates for many use cases.
  • Support is awesome. If we ever ran into issues with more complex setups, we got quick help.
  • Value for money compared to competitors.
  • Integration into monitoring solutions is possible but could be more intuitive.
  • The web-based interface sometimes needs a manual refresh to show the actual status of services.

  • Installation & configuration is really easy. The web portal is self explanatory.
  • The load balancing by Kemp for our exchange server is doing excellent job.
  • The tech support is par excellence.
  • The backup/restore feature is so simple. In case of failure, you can bring back Kemp in a short time.
  • I enjoyed the live logs and reporting in TMG server, which i miss it here.
  • The license file is locked with the MAC address. In case of restoring it on a different VM would cause issue.
  • The Web portal is sometimes looks more complex and confusing. It can be more simplified.

  • 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.
  • Really my only complaint is the web interface itself. It could use a bit of a facelift and start utilizing a more modern front-end. Mainly around each click is a page redirect which works fine, but many sites now save and load async while you navigate around.

  • Load Balances on both port 80 and 443.
  • Identifies which server is closest physically to the user for best responses.
  • Identifies which server has the lowest network response time for the best user speeds.
  • I would like to see better tools like wire shark built into the system.
  • Immediate viewing and digestion of logs would be beneficial.
  • I examine live grepping on a barracuda firewall and I miss that in the Kemp LB.
