LOAD-BALANCING & APPLICATION DELIVERY: DISTRIBUTING THE LOAD CLEVERLY OVER MULTIPLE SERVERS
Infrastructures with the highest availability comprise multiple servers performing the same task. A problem with the operating system can still undermine the most redundantly-designed server, and eventually the total load can be greater than even the fastest system can process. For these problems server load-balancing offers a solution. With load-balancing you can spread the load intelligently across multiple servers, based on server response times, the number of connections or other criteria.
Spread the load between independent and geographically separate locations? No problem. That’s what we use the Global Server Load-Balancing (GSLB) for: an ideal method for setting up disaster recovery or backup sites.
