Kemp validated as a Dell EMC Select Partner for load balancing on ECS object storage platform

Kemp next-gen load balancing further optimises Dell EMC hyperscale cloud and multi-cloud capabilities

SYDNEY, May 17, 2019 – Kemp, the leader in powering always-on application experiences (AX), announced today it has been validated as a Dell EMC Select Partner to streamline the delivery of scalable and resilient Dell EMC ECS deployments through its next-generation, load balancing software and hardware.

As a Dell EMC Select partner, the Kemp LoadMaster® has been qualified for Dell EMC ECS load balancing and proxy interoperability. This joint solution enables customers to maximise the value of their infrastructure investments, optimise service availability, and roll out next-generation applications that require the flexibility of ECS object storage.

This includes use cases such as geo-protected archiving, designing new cloud and multi-cloud applications, and providing storage-as-a-service through one-storage architecture.

“ANZ enterprises are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies when they digitalize their businesses. Having a dependable load-balancing model is critical for business agility and scalability, and every firm demands insights to their apps and reliability,” said Tony Sandberg, Regional Director, APAC, Kemp.

“By partnering Dell EMC through the Select Partner Program, we are now offering this vital always-on AX to businesses in ANZ, helping them maximize and optimize their IT infrastructures.”

The Dell EMC Select Partner Program makes it easier for customers to build out complete solutions that are optimised by trusted partners. Kemp’s inclusion will help customers further enhance their ECS infrastructures. Kemp’s participation in the Dell EMC Select Partner Program also enables simplified procurement through Dell EMC’s global sales channels.

“As more applications are deployed in a combination of public and private cloud environments, it becomes essential to marry multi-cloud load balancing with hyperscale object storage,” said Jason Dover, Vice President of Product Strategy for Kemp.

“Through our collaboration with Dell EMC’s product, solution architecture and field teams, we can now jointly provide customers with a trusted model for getting maximum scale and resilience for their critical, Dell EMC-powered cloud application storage infrastructure.”

“We are excited to partner with Kemp to deliver highly available and scalable object storage deployments to support our customers’ application requirements,” said Karl Korbus, Senior Vice President of Sales at Dell EMC. “Working closely with Kemp will enable us to engage in opportunities where we can maximise our collective resources to solve the cloud and multi-cloud challenges facing our joint customers.”

Tim Quinn, director of partner development for Kemp added: “Being part of the Dell EMC Select Partner Program has allowed us to enable field sales teams to help customers shorten time to market for their application projects that rely on highly available ECS deployments.”
