Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The security features are the most valuable features of this solution.""We really like the performance of this solution.""I like the way this solution handles multiple SSLs in different domains while still load balancing.""The base feature of Kemp LoadMaster load balancing ticks all the boxes but the most valuable features would be the security features Intrusion Prevention (IPS) and Web Application Firewall (WAF).""I like that this is a Network Load Balancer that can be used practically with any application in the backend. They have how-to guides on how to set up Kemp NLB with Exchange, but you can use it as well for Sharepoint, RDS, or any other back end server.""The most valuable feature that I found is the load balancing feature, it is the core function of the product.""When you configure the listening services, you can implement a lot of security features like the Edge Security Pack that intercepts the requests and processes those before they are sent to the real servers.""The configuration is really easy and the web portal is self-explanatory."

More Kemp LoadMaster Pros »

"It helps us to route the traffic to the available servers. If we didn't have Loadbalancer we would fail to set the end-user and it would cause a failure in the cluster.""For now, it's stable."

Cons
"To make it a perfect ten out of ten it would need better connection logging. If there is an active connection, that there is better logging. It should also have better management monitoring tools.""The GUI is rather technical and complex, so it could be improved by making it simpler and more user-friendly.""Although Kemp is very user-friendly, it lacks a more custom configuration.""Overall, the Kemp LoadMaster has been an all-rounder great product and stable. The free trial and virtual edition make it a breeze for any potential customer to give it a spin before actually deciding to put it on the infrastructure or even talk to the CFO.""The product is really good as-is out of the box. If there is one thing I would change is to have the license file not be coupled with the MAC address of the device. This is actually not really useful in a virtual environment where if you have a single VM with KEMP LoadMaster and you have not set up static MAC Address, if you, for example, recreate the VM and just load the disk file on a new VM it will get new MAC address and the NLB will not work as it will not see a proper license.""Third, the password history restriction needs improvement. For example, the password policy will restrict the user to always use a unique password combination. The password should not be reused for a minimum of three generations of passwords.""It would be helpful if there were a way to incorporate tooltips on the fields so that we don't have to dig through documentation.""I think there should be more visual instructions on how to configure advanced features."

More Kemp LoadMaster Cons »

"There are many features you can set in the backend of Loadbalancer. They should simplify the configuration. The administrator should be able to configure it more simply. How it is now, you can only configure it if you have a lot of experience.""It doesn't have the bonding capability feature."

More Loadbalancer.org Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The license varies according to the number of megabits.""Licensing is yearly and I am going to guess that it is CAN $2000.00.""Any decent product will cost money and if you want great support and a great product, then you will want to spend the money on it.""Nowadays, going with the virtual appliance is the easiest way and the cost is reasonable.""They have multiple tiers of licensing and you can upgrade it easily.""Pricing for the perpetual licensing was fair to us for the features and ease of use we received.""This product has good value and features for the money.""The setup cost and pricing plan is reasonable and will ultimately give you a worthy return."

No experience with Loadbalancer.org, but having had experience with both F5 and Kemp, I would recommend Kemp by a mile. Their support org is first class and super responsive.
