Load Balancer Benefits
for absolute peace of mind
Add or remove servers from your infrastructure at any time, without long maintenance windows or service disruptions.
Minimize the downtime of your online business in the event of a network or power outage,by redirecting traffic to a secondary/active server.
Traffic and client requests are distributed fairly preventing overutilization of resources in a single server.
How it Works
A load balancer acts as a “traffic orchestrator” between client requests and your servers in order to fulfill requests fast, securely and without interruption.
In a scenario where a load balancer is introduced, you ensure that all servers are utilized “fairly”, avoiding under or over utilization which could lead to a degraded performance.
In the case that one of your servers goes down, the load balancer will redirect traffic to the remaining online servers. Moreover, when upgrading your infrastructure by introducing new servers, the load balancer automatically starts to send requests to it.

Load balancing is the technology process used to efficiently distribute network and/or application traffic across multiple servers. Load Balancers reside between backend servers (for example Databases) and client devices (e.g. a user's web browser). Any requests from the client devices are received by the load balancer(s) and then distributed to the server(s) farm and eventually to the back-end server(s).
