The IT team at the University were looking for a load-balancing solution that was both cost-effective and would ensure uptime and high-availability for their critical IT systems. They sought the help of SysGroup to assess their needs and suggest the best options.


SysGroup has successfully:

  • Configured and installed KEMP LoadMaster 3600 appliances
  • Enabled Microsoft Exchange server load balancing for over 2,000 users

After comparing the specifications and performance of the KEMP appliances against price, the university concluded that, compared to two other well-known load balancer products, these offered the best value overall.


The benefits have been immediate. We previously used software load balancing solutions and found these to be limiting in terms of functionality. They also offered several reference contacts for other recent KEMP LoadMaster projects and added that extra bit of value when it came to installation with their flexible and helpful approach.
