Customer expectations are rising for digital channels for metrics such as site speed and stability. And to meet these customer expectations, businesses must ensure that their digital experiences are truly ‘zero friction’. Therefore, organizations that have high levels of website activity or mission-critical web and mobile applications that are used by large numbers of customers or employees – should use load balancers.

Such organizations need more than one server to manage the high volume of concurrent requests, and using a load balancer helps them share the traffic load across different physical or virtual servers. While layer 4 load balancers act upon data found in network and transport layer protocols (IP, TCP, FTP, UDP), layer 7 distributes requests based upon data found in application layer protocols such as HTTP.

Products

Hardware, virtual or cloud, loadbalancer develops the best load balancing technology on the market, with licensing uniquely designed for your freedom.

Loadbalancer is used by some of the world’s top companies to ensure security, focus on zero down time, and better performance and scalability.

  • Hardware devices (like the one pictured above) that physically live in organizations’ IT departments or data centers.
  • Software solutions that can be installed on physical or virtual machines in data centers, on-premises, or in the cloud.

Organizations looking for simple load balancing capabilities should go for standard hardware or software-based load balancers as these are cost-effective and easy to install and manage. Some vendors combine load balancing functionality with additional capabilities, such as security features. For example, Loadbalancer.org appliances come complete with a web application firewall (WAF) as a standard feature.

Load balancers are most commonly deployed in active-passive pairs to ensure zero downtime in business-critical applications. All traffic can then be redirected to the redundant device, both to provide business continuity in the event of a failure and to remove the need for scheduled downtime for maintenance.

  • High availability: ensuring applications are always accessible
  • Scalability: making it easy to change server infrastructure without disrupting the user experience
  • Security: adding additional layers of security to your IT applications
  • Zero downtime: instantly and automatically rerouting traffic to an alternate server in the cluster, eliminating interruption in application availability
  • Redundancy: if something goes wrong with one server, the backup servers take over and restart applications that were running on the failed server
  • IT flexibility: allowing technicians to disconnect, patch, upgrade and reconnect servers without any disruption for users
  • Efficiency: providing consistent and fast app performance for thousands of concurrent users.
