Overall Satisfaction with Kemp LoadMaster

We use it across the entire office, we use it to load balance our ADFS systems and our line of business.
This allows us to take servers up and down that are load balanced to do maintenance. This keeps us up and running at all times.
We also implemented a Kemp LB at our DR location, this allows us to test our DR plan and keep things up and running. It has saved down time, which alone is the best value.
  • Setup is super easy. They have templates you can import and all the settings are there minus the IP address of virtual service and the Server IP's needed.
  • Support, anytime we have a question we are able to talk to someone who knows the answer. We don't have to start at a low level support. This saves time to get this back up and running if we do have issues. Which are normally us trying to do something odd, which of course Kemp does with ease.
  • How quickly and easy it is to take a machine out of the virtual service. We are allows to do maintenance on a machine and keep our services up and running. Then we just click a button and machine is back up and connected.
  • Reporting, they have reporting but maybe could update the visuals they are kinda small and look out dated a bit.
  • Not a fan of how an account has to be unlocked in two different locations within the program. Took me a while to figure out why an account couldn't log in. Small issue.
  • There maybe a way, but not sure if possible, since we use a virtual LBl we would love to have a setting that doesn't reboot when ctrl alt del is hit on remote console, we have accidently rebooted LB on that page before. Granted it was back up and running in like 5 seconds.
  • Positive we don't have to worry about the LB doing what we expected it to. This takes something that is very [critical] and not have to worry about it.
  • DR testing, the LB's have allowed us to take machines up and down to the DR location and once swapped to DR, the LB down there will just pick up the new servers and we are good to go.
None, we were recommend this product from a vendor and went with their choice. We are fully impressed and have no issues with this product, Would recommend to everyone every time. This has changed the way we do work and don't have to worry about it. Made the job so much simpler.
They have templates you can download and just import based on what you're needing it to do.
Simple download import and then update with your Virtual IP you need to share, and the servers you want to actually use.

This makes it very easy setup time, and usability makes it a breeze.
Every time we have to call, it's usually a question on how we can do some weird things we want to do with the system, and every time they have the answer we are looking for.
Also when we call in, we get the top level of support, we aren't going to a ticket creator who doesn't know the system. This saves time and headaches.

Servers that share a load, ADFS, we also have App servers for our main line of business. This allows to take up and down servers at our pleasure. We can take server A down and leave Server B doing the work with a click of a button and vice versa when we need.
