KEMP Becomes Qualified Microsoft Partner
KEMP Technologies has announced that it is now a fully qualified member of Microsoft's Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program (UCOIP).
The news means that the KEMP LoadMaster family of products are now qualified for Microsoft Lync 2013. In order to gain the complete UCOIP qualification the company, a leading provider of virtual load balancer software, had to undergo extensive technical evaluation by Microsoft.
KEMP LoadMaster is an advanced Layer 4-7 load balancing/application delivery controller (ADC) solution. It enables enterprises to intelligently direct user traffic in order to ensure applications perform at their optimum level, whether the application is on-premise, virtualised or in hybrid cloud data centres.
The company has been named as a Microsoft Gold competency partner for both communications and messaging. KEMP LoadMasters are available with flexible deployment options and are available on a wide array of hypervisor and cloud platforms, as well as dedicated KEMP appliances and third party best-in-class 'bare metal' servers.
KEMP and Microsoft have a long history of partnering to deliver solutions. KEMP is one of only three vendors that have achieved this inclusion to the UCOIP.
Jeff Fisher, vice president of strategic alliances at KEMP Technologies, commented: "KEMP's acceptance into Microsoft's UCOIP demonstrates the ongoing commitment to our long standing partnership with Microsoft and its customer base.
"Our compatibility with and support of Microsoft Unified Communications solutions like Lync and Exchange are further enhanced with this qualification. We look forward to the joint market opportunities it will bring as we continue to help deliver highly available and optimised Microsoft solutions for our customers."
