KEMP Joins Intel Network Programme
KEMP Technologies has announced that it is joining the Intel Network Builders Ecosystem, a programme that has been designed to boost the deployment of software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV) solutions.
Bringing together leading ecosystem vendors, the Intel Network Builders Program allows top vendors to showcase proven solutions that are ready to be implanted into production environments.
According to Peter Melerud, chief marketing officer for KEMP, the firm is pleased to be part of the programme. He said: "This is a very important programme for KEMP because it brings together industry leaders in a cooperative effort to develop real reference architectures for both SDN and NFV – two technologies KEMP is investing significant R&D."
KEMP's SDN Adaptive Load Balancing Application has been designed to allow Virtual LoadMasters to draw circuit information related to network congestion across the NBI (northbound interface) within an SDN controller so that it is capable of making better application load balancing decisions.
According to MarketWired, the benefits of such an intelligent algorithm aggregation system is that it increased the application visibility, it improves users' capabilities for steering Layer 2 traffic, and in also enables true ADC and SDN integration.
Renu Navale, manager of the Intel Network Builders Ecosystem, has suggested that KEMP's solutions have been significantly updated to provide a market leading performance. He said: "Their continued development of this technology and complementary technologies around NFV will prove valuable to the Intel Network Builders Program."
