Load Balancing

Load Balancing or LB in the most generic sense is the managing of data flows and distributing them across multiple endpoints in such a way to increase availability and/or performance. Network load balancing typically occurs at layer 4, Application / Website load balancing (or reverse proxying as it may also be considered) typically occurs at layer 7.

Pipe Ten deploys load balancers to achieve high availability and increased performance for customers on any type of infrastructure.
