April 6, 2011 by · Comments Off on KEMP Launches Server Load Balancing for Microsoft Exchange 2010 

Hosting ReviewsYaphank, N.Y. – KEMP Technologies today announced the availability of its new LoadMaster Exchange (LM-Exchange) server load balancing and application delivery appliance. The newest member of its family of affordable load balancers, the KEMP LoadMaster Exchange is designed to address high-availability and scalability demands of Microsoft Exchange 2010 deployments for businesses up to 250 users.

While all of KEMP’s server load balancing and application delivery controller (ADCs) products currently support and are approved by Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2010 qualification program for hardware and software load balancers, the LM-Exchange is the first product of its kind that was specifically designed and purpose-built for Microsoft’s Exchange 2010. “For the smaller business that may not be familiar with load balancing technology, ease-of-use and speed of deployment was our top priority in the design and development of this product,” said Peter Melerud, vice president of product management at KEMP. “For the vast majority of smaller enterprises, which will consolidate the primary Exchange 2010 server roles onto a pair of servers, the LM-Exchange can be deployed in less than five minutes, providing instant redundancy and high-availability for client access server (CAS) and other critical Exchange 2010 services.” Read more

With OneClickSSL, users simply activate SSL for their website by redeeming Secure Site vouchers via any of the OneClickSSL plug-ins.  Redemption of the voucher means the plug-in transparently creates the cryptographic keys, the Certificate Signing Request (CSR), validates the control of the domain, installs the issued certificate and binds it to the appropriate website, all within 45 seconds.
