Overall Satisfaction with Kemp LoadMaster
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.
- Installation procedure
- Creating the configuration for HA
- Being stable and efficient
- Documentation should be more concise and to the point.
- There should be an LTE type of release train available.
- Use in Linux environments should be supported better.
- Ability to scale our services to a higher audience.
- Better stability for our services during vacation periods.
- Employees more happy with more professional solution in place.
LoadMaster is a bit more professional and enterprise grade than a simple open source tool that is free of charge like HAProxy. LoadMaster fares better in Windows application environments than HAProxy, and the configuration of LoadMaster is done in a more modern way through an easy to use UI rather than a configuration file and command-line window.

In Windows application environments for enterprise-grade, highly available applications demanding serious scaling, Kemp LoadMaster is a great choice. It has easy installation and good default settings. In Linux application environments Kemp LoadMaster doesn't shine, though. Kemp LoadMaster can be deployed in a virtual infrastructure including VMware vcloud / ESXi but should be deployable elsewhere as well.
