V8 load balancer software driving security, PCI compliance and promoting easy migration to cloud-based services: Easing PCI compliance with WAF across the range; New one-click master/slave pairing; Makes migration to cloud-based services simpler; Upgraded virtual appliance (VA) base model

Loadbalancer.org, Inc., market leaders in supplying affordable high-performance load balancing solutions with unbeatable customer support, today announce the launch of a major management software update, V8.0. The software addresses market feedback to enable smooth migration to cloud-based services and security for PCI compliance for all, along with a raft of improvements in making load-balancing management simple, yet powerful.

“The new software release is the second step in a series of planned responses to market demands,” says Malcolm Turnbull, CEO, Loadbalancer.org, Inc. He added, “It was clear that customers wanted the integration of a web application firewall (WAF), but unlike other suppliers we have introduced it across the board and so it will now help businesses of all sizes to easily become PCI compliant.”

The load balancing appliances are now secure by default with unique security keys generated on first boot. Businesses that are moving to cloud based services will also benefit from easy migration with Amazon’s AWS and Microsoft Azure both fully supported. There is also a new ‘one-click’ master & slave pairing making set-up incredibly easy.

“One thing that became very clear was the market also wanted a less restrictive license on the base model, the R16. In response to this, we have replaced the base model with the improved R20 that comprises 5 application clusters each with 4 back-ends,” states Malcolm Turnbull. “We believe this will be more compatible with the vast majority of customer deployments and help reduce costs. This keeps us ahead of the curve and keeps us as the best value-for-money of any established load balancing supplier.”

The new software is now shipping with all new appliances and available as an online update to existing customers.
