KEMP Technologies announces the release of a Java API to automate provisioning deployment of application delivery services. The new Java API builds on KEMP’s existing comprehensive API set, supporting the widely deployed Java environment. It allows for rapid, seamless integration of the LoadMaster into existing management frameworks to drive faster time to market when updating or delivering new services.
For customers who have invested in a DevOps methodology, the LoadMaster can then become an element in their continuous development – or even continuous deployment – delivery model. A developer can use the published API specification to build a customized interface to the LoadMaster, allowing full control of the LoadMaster as an integral component of network based services.
This evolution in programmability of the LoadMaster extends the existing RESTful API and PowerShell features, allowing administration of multiple instances without manual intervention. This reduces operational cost and complexity as customers build out their infrastructure adding new LoadMasters to existing networks, into hybrid cloud and their new agile data centers.
“KEMP is focused on supporting customers in highly automated cloud environments. In striving to support them, we are continuing to integrate with automation orchestration platforms to make service life cycle management easier,” said Peter Melerud, Chief Marketing Officer for KEMP.
