Load balancing for high performance websites and applications
The performance of your servers has the potential to directly influence both your online brand experience and your revenue generation. Users will click elsewhere if your website does not load quickly and Google’s algorithms now reward websites with pages that load more quickly.
Load balancing is a straightforward concept but one that can make a big difference to your website performance and its availability.
In most cases, a physical load balancer sits in front of your servers, or server cluster, and distributes traffic to the load balanced servers according to a set of configuration rules. The load balancer will continuously check the health, or availability, of the servers, website or application within the hosting platform.
By load balancing your servers, you can guarantee a faster user experience whilst also providing higher availability, as your website is protected from a single point of failure at the server level.
