Tiered Server Redundancy with KEMP Loadmaster

As a load balancer and application delivery controller the KEMP Loadmaster is versatile in how it can be deployed. Some of our customers aren't looking for a traditional load balancing solution but instead want tiered server redundancy.

What if I don't want to balance my servers? Can the LoadMaster provide tiered server redundancy?

You'll be delighted to hear that it can and that it's not realy a big deal to set up.

Prioritising your Server Clusters Correctly

A cluster consists of a group of networked servers that are often called nodes. These nodes are able to run the  server content of any of the other servers in their cluster and are ready to take up the load should one or more of the other servers in the network fail because of hardware or software failure. Clustered computers are aware of their peers, continually monitor peer level performance and can make decisions when to take over from a server in the cluster when it is considered, thanks to pre-programmed algorithms, that intervention is required.

Direct Server Return is it for you?

Direct Server Return or DSR was introduced into the feature set of load balancers or Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) to deal with a particular potential problem. The core design concept of load balancers is to distribute traffic load across clustered CPUs, RAM, network infrastructure and discs in order to increase network reliability and performance while introducing the benefits of redundancy.

Understanding Active-Passive, Active/Active load balancing

active/active and active/passive pair

As businesses today, thanks to the extended use of the internet run a 24/7 operation, needs networks to be designed to assure high availability (H/A). The two most popular methods adopted by network managers today to achieve this are to use clustering to deal with failover (Active/Passive Mode) and load balancing. Active/Active mode is employed to provide for database or session replication and to support redundancy.
