Kemp 360 AX Fabric Debuts

December 26, 2018

Kemp 360 AX Fabric is an elastic and infinitely scalable application delivery, and load balancing interconnect. The Kemp 360 AX Fabric enables enterprise customers to deliver an optimal application user experience while maintaining the centralized insight required to be in total control regardless of the type or number of cloud delivery platforms.

According to a Gartner report by Lydia Leong, “Most organizations will use more than one public cloud provider.” Leong writes, “Most organizations will have at least one application that uses a multicloud architecture, typically through the use of a cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider in conjunction with multiple platform as a service (PaaS) components from different providers. However, very few organizations will migrate applications from one cloud provider to another. Such migrations will usually require significant manual effort, rather than being highly automated.” 1

With applications traversing a mix of multiple public and private cloud environments, and as disparate business units increasingly rely on the autonomy from IT to deploy applications into the cloud as needed, enterprises are encountering a visibility blind-spot into application availability, health, and security. The result is an unpredictable user experience that can translate into a negative business impact. The Kemp 360 Application Experience Fabric, or AX Fabric, empowers enterprise customers to efficiently deploy, scale and analyze their application workloads while achieving an always-on application experience for users.

“We deliver applications for our customers across both private cloud and as a hosted cloud offering, and it’s critical to provide a consistent user experience regardless of how they choose to deploy,” said Tim Templeton, director of systems engineering for Edupoint, which is focused on student information, learning, and special education management needs of K-12 school districts. “Kemp made life easy by providing very flexible options for load balancing and a centralized view of our mixed-app environment. The cloud licensing model also helped us move away from the unpredictably high-cost of our legacy application delivery infrastructure.”

Key enhancements to Kemp 360 include:

•Extended cloud and endpoint platform support. LoadMaster® offers customers the most flexible options for optimizing and securing applications on any platform. This includes cloud-native deployment options in AWS and Azure, virtual support and integrations with Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), VMware Cloud for AWS, and Nutanix hyper-converged infrastructure.

•Enhanced cloud migration capabilities. Unlike legacy deployments in a singular location, multi-cloud environments lack a simple and centralized point of management. With Kemp 360, application traffic is seamlessly managed across public and private clouds to mitigate local failures. Kemp Central® works to simplify the day-to-day management of the application experience, while Kemp Vision℠ monitors the environment to preemptively predict errors that could result in a failure by providing remedial actions before an outage occurs.

•Pay-as-you-go load balancing. Unlike traditional deployment models where the customer pays per-load balancer and must predict future application throughput, Kemp’s metered licensing and per-app deployment model enables customers to provision any number of LoadMasters as needed. This reduces the total cost of ownership for load balancing and eliminates up-front over-provisioning.

•Predictive application performance analytics. Utilizing a shared database of past application issues from across all customer deployments, Kemp Vision℠ applies that learning to individual customer environments for faster detection and remediation of application issues.

“While cloud adoption in the enterprise has gone mainstream, a gap remains when it comes to ensuring an always-on application experience for cloud-delivered apps,” said Jason Dover, vice president of product strategy for Kemp. “This is what Kemp has set out to solve with the Kemp 360 Application Experience Fabric. Customers can now benefit from a simplified and centralized model of optimizing application performance, analyzing application health and preemptively detecting and remediating app issues to minimize or eliminate the ‘blast radius’ of an application outage.”
