Load Balancing

Load Balancing

Load balancing distributes incoming workloads across a pool of backend resources. It maximizes performance and efficiency for computing resources such as web servers.

Load Balancing and Security

Load balancing provides many benefits for the organizations that use it. However, it adds a significant amount of complexity to the processing of traffic. This raises a question: what additional vulnerabilities might it create for the user?

What is Auto Scaling

Autoscaling is the automatic increase or decrease of computational resources that are available for assignment to workloads.

What is Cloud load balancing

As the name implies, cloud load balancing is Internet load balancing, performed in the cloud instead of on-premise. “Internet load balancing” means that Internet traffic is coming into a web application (a site, service, API, etc.).

How Load Balancing works

A load balancer (LB) accepts incoming requests from clients, and distributes them across its backend resources (which can be services, microservices, VMs, containers, storage, etc.)

What is Load Balancing?

Load balancing is the distribution of workloads across computing resources. It allows a single system to access a large pool of resources. This gives it a greater capacity, and the ability to serve clients with better performance. It also eliminates single points of failure, and introduces redundancy (and thus reliability) for the resources in question.
