Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure with Kemp
High availability and disaster recovery are of highest importance for application infrastructure since other important factors such as capacity and performance are negated if service is not available or cannot quickly be recovered in the event of an instance failure or degradation. While the Azure platform provides native, basic application load balancing capabilities, Kemp’s Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) for Azure greatly enhances and complements these capabilities by delivering true layer 7 Application Delivery.
When VLM for Azure is combined with Kemp’s GSLB functionality known as GEO, high availability across on-premise and cloud based application pools and intelligent global traffic distribution across multiple private cloud infrastructures and Azure becomes possible, providing highly resilient, scalable and smart application deployments.
Kemp’s close relationship to Microsoft and commitment to enhanced integration with Microsoft platforms such as Azure and their suite of Enterprise productivity applications, results in optimal end-to-end user experience.See how LoadMaster compares to Azure native load balancer capabilities
