NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 18, 2015) - KEMP Technologies today announced the release of a new family of high performance application delivery controllers (ADCs) enabling customers to more easily scale as their application performance and security needs evolve.

The 5000 series targets medium and larger enterprises with high transaction intranet and backend workflow applications. As part of the ultra-high performance family, the 8000 series scales up to 30Gbps of application throughput and 30,000 SSL TPS to meet the needs of larger environments, service providers, and web scale deployments. Both the 5000 and 8000 series come standard with multiple 10Gb interfaces and are the only load balancers with native SDN adaptive traffic steering capabilities. This enables LoadMaster™ to seamlessly integrate in software defined networks and provide optimal application quality of experience.

"KEMP is addressing two important requirements in ADC scale and integration," said Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst at 451 Research. "Leveraging next generation processor capabilities is complex, but can have the great performance benefits today's applications demand. The SDN integration capabilities could give customers greater agility in deploying critical network and security functionality with associated operational savings. The combination of detailed performance visibility and traffic control can be a powerful tool in delivering the application performance that users demand."

"We've engineered our LMOS -- the ADC operating system driving our appliances -- to take full advantage of the latest advancements in Intel® Xeon® processors, including increased core count and performance," said Peter Melerud, Chief Marketing Officer for KEMP. "This allowed us to eliminate the use of proprietary FPGAs and reduce the dependency on custom ASICs to deliver ultra-high performance and scale for demanding application environments. These cost savings translate directly into significant reduction in TCA and TCO for our customers that require high performance Layer 7 load balancing, SSL encryption processing, high capacity IPS/IDS and Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities which are all CPU-intensive tasks."
