ROUND ROCK, Texas & NEW YORK -- April 17, 2013

Dell and KEMP Technologies today announced the LoadMaster™ R320, a
purpose-built, hardware load balancing and application delivery
controller.The KEMP LoadMaster R320, based on the high performance variant of
the Dell PowerEdge™ R320 server and leveraging the global support network of
Dell, enables medium-to-large enterprises to assure the high availability and
reliability of web-based business-critical applications.

The LoadMaster R320 enables data center clusters powering Internet sites and
large intranets to intelligently and efficiently distribute network traffic
among web and application servers. A resource optimization layer in front of
applications and infrastructure servers gives IT administrators greater
control to adapt to network changes and enable the best network and
infrastructure performance.

The LoadMaster R320 delivers on these requirements through the inclusion of
the latest advancements in Layer 4 and 7 load balancing, content switching,
SSL acceleration, Layer 7 content switching, caching, compression, IPS, IP and
Layer 7 persistence. All KEMP load balancers are optimized for a broad range
of IP applications including core Microsoft Enterprise workloads such as
Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, RDS and Dynamics.

Leveraging the Dell OEM Solutions’ capabilities of the Integrated Dell Remote
Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller in the Dell PowerEdge
server, IT administrators can manage and monitor the LoadMaster R320 and Dell
application servers using a common enterprise management platform. Customers
can easily track and receive alerts about hardware issues, perform remote
management and minimize the need for physical access to the appliance through
out-of-band management, LoadMaster recovery options, user and role-based
access, and basic integration with Dell Open Manage Essentials.

The LoadMaster R320 is the first KEMP platform to be delivered through Dell
OEM Solutions, which provides customers with dedicated engineering, program
management and go-to-market resources, industry-standard hardware and global
services and support capabilities. Manufacturers can access resources from
Dell OEM Solutions to expedite time to market, save time and money on
development, and keep up with the changing demands of their customers.
