The load balancer is the central hub of a server farm. It queries the status of all redundant application servers in real time. By means of an active feedback system, the load balancer can evenly distribute load peaks over all available systems.
Even load distribution
Higher availability through load distribution: A load balancer improves availability as well as the scalability of your services and applications.
- Tasks of a load balancer
- Load balancing yields flexibility
At the same time, load balancers provide the flexibility of expanding the server farm with any number of servers or instances in a computing cloud. If a server fails or is being serviced, the load balancer immediately removes it from the active operating process. The result for your online service: High-availability around-the-clock 24/7/365.
