Kamatera’s cloud load balancer is a virtual, scalable, high availability component that improves user response time and system stability by distributing workloads across two or more working servers and resources to maximize performance and avoid overload.
After verifying server availability using HTTP, TCP or UDP checks, the Cloud Load Balancer routes incoming network traffic to the servers that are available for response. Your performance will therefore remain stable even at times of peak usage, or in the unlikely event that one of your servers fails.
Kamatera Cloud Load Balancer can handle almost any number of requests and is not restricted by the number of servers you have, among its features are:
- Load balancing algorithm based on Round Robin
- Handling of SSL decryption (sometimes referred to as SSL offloading termination)
- Least connections and weight
- Session persistence across HTTP/S protocols and more
While maximum performance will be achieved by using Kamatera’s Cloud Servers, this is not mandatory; you can use cloud load balancing for 3rd party servers located outside the Kamatera Cloud.
Load balancing is charged on a pay-as-you-go basis, by actual time used by the minute, with no commitment, in line with Kamatera’s other cloud services.
