Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Great web balancing and remote access balancing.""When the templates are used, there is not much left to configure and they just work!""The old process of manually having to redirect Outlook Web Access traffic and Email traffic to a second server is a thing of the past.""Managing and maintaining multiple servers is done in a single place.""The most valuable feature is the load balancing and allowing for high availability of our web services.""The most valuable feature that I found is the load balancing feature, it is the core function of the product.""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 the way this solution handles multiple SSLs in different domains while still load balancing."

"For now, it's stable.""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."

Cons
"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.""I really don't like the way the logs are presented in the software.""Certificate installations could be simplified and modernized, and allowed to be monitored for expirations/issues.""It would be nice if the historical metrics were easily exportable from the interface.""When we go serverless, we may again have to revisit this because the configuration needs to be changed. With this change, we can run into a lot of other configurations that we haven't got into, which involve additional expenses. It would be challenging to convince management to buy at that price point. It would be a balancing act of justifying that expense and the value, that is, how it is going to save a bit of time and make our platform secure. It can have better configuration ability. A lot of iterations happen when we have multiple servers pointing to the same domain. If we do not orchestrate carefully, it gets into a loop, which takes away the precious time of the user who is trying to subscribe to a service. It takes a little longer time to realize services as well as web pages.""I think there should be more visual instructions on how to configure advanced features.""The only thing I have struggled with is setting up automatic backups.""Although Kemp is very user-friendly, it lacks a more custom configuration."

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."

    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.
