Overall Satisfaction with Kemp LoadMaster

We are using Kemp LoadMaster as a proxy between exchange servers, web applications, and external users to protect/balance the internal resource from the outside world. The product has been deployed in our environment for more than 5 years. We are moving more and more web applications behind this appliance to save static IP addresses and reduce the configuration between different web platforms. The load balance function also helps us continuously provide service while we are doing regular maintenance at the back-end server farm.
  • SSL offloading, SSL ciphers option
  • Load balance for the back-end server farm
  • Product support
  • Template for different web application
  • Quite a lot of different options to configure popular web applications such as Exchange OWA
  • The template could be more user-friendly. Kemp could provide more examples of how to customize settings instead of just giving the package.
  • The configuration GUI could be better by providing a guide or more options to choose from instead of typing in.
  • Cost, compared with HA-Proxy.
  • Backup/Restore, I wish they could be in one place - Certs need to be backup separated.
LoadMaster has better support. More templates can be downloaded from the support website.

If you have a variety of web applications on different web platforms, Kemp LoadMaster is a one-time stop piece for you to force the SSL/TLS strong encryption. It handles the security traffic between the end-user and the web application. You don't need to worry about different configurations from different web servers because Kemp does it all. For network load balance, Kemp is also well suited at balancing the traffic load between multiple internal servers, so you can add/remove servers much easier, plus you can easily upgrade/maintain the internal server without interrupting the service.
