Load Balancing

Web application load balancing is the direction or balancing of traffic across multiple servers or services for the purposes of scaling an application for availability, scaling, performance and efficiency.

Traditional DNS load balancing can be as simple as defining multiple public server addresses for your traffic pointing to different infrastructures, where as more advanced DNS load balancing includes providing different public server addresses depending on the availability or end-users IP locality so directing them to available and/or local infrastructure.

Traditional web application load balancing involves directing different end-users to multiple horizontally scaled backend web servers, using either round-robin (random selection) or sticky-session (hashed end-user IP or cookie ID selection) routing methods.

Advanced web application load balancing combines all elements of caching, content delivery, web application firewalling, DNS load balancing and more.
