The configuration is really easy and the web portal is self-explanatory.

One of the most valuable features I like is the ability to block specific cipher suites like RC4, and older protocols like SSL 3.0.

The feature that allows us to easily disconnect a server when we need and bring back online is the most valuable. It's a click of a button. This allows us to keep all systems up. We can then run updates, perform reboots whatever we need to one of the servers without taking production down.

Persistence is very valuable. This holds the connection information of the source and that connection is important to RDP and our APO calls. The connection has to be persisted to the original source to operate properly. We also use the subsections for sub-services to create services inside our services for our API resources, this is most awesome. We would not be able to do this without Kemp and offer this type of sub-service to route based on an API instance. It routes the traffic properly based on the sub-service type.

When the templates are used, there is not much left to configure and they just work!

The most valuable feature so far has been the high-availability options that allowed us to add an additional Kemp LoadMaster VLM virtual appliance into our VMware vSphere environment, to provide failover for our existing LoadMaster.

It has greatly fortified the performance and uptime of our front-door email ingress, simplified and segmented mail routing, and reduced admin overhead for mail issue resolution and troubleshooting.

The most valuable feature is the load balancing and allowing for high availability of our web services.

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.

Information Technology Manager at Larson Engineering, Inc.
The only thing that I miss is that the TMG server was giving me live information about who is connected and what is the request about.

The only thing I have struggled with is setting up automatic backups.

If I had to change something it would maybe be to have a little better reporting graphics that show more details in the reporting. It seems to be a little small in the graphic, and I'm not sure if possible but maybe a GUI page that one can use to monitor if any server goes down.

I would like to see more automation and control of overactive and inactive resources. If I could schedule these around our updates then it would be all automated. I would like to set up an automated script to coincide with the scripts I use to update resources and servers.

It would be nice if the historical metrics were easily exportable from the interface.

So far, the only hitch we have run into is that would have been nice to have an easier method to add allow/whitelist entries into the Access Control lists for virtual services.

It would be much easier to have the management interface directly integrate with the Kemp Support library, allowing you to choose the desired template from the online catalog to then directly download to the LoadMaster.

Certificate installations could be simplified and modernized, and allowed to be monitored for expirations/issues.

The configuration of the basic services is pretty straight forward but for more complex solutions, there needs to be better documentation or knowledge base articles.

The cost of the GEO upgrade is not cost-prohibitive but it's something that would be a nice add-in, out of the box.
