Load Balancer for Your Server

The load balancer distributes incoming application traffic among multiple instances. It can increase the fault tolerance of your applications and helps make them more highly available.

The load balancer serves as a single point of contact for clients, which increases the availability of your application. You can add and remove instances from your load balancer as your needs change, without disrupting the overall flow of requests to your application.

With load balancing, we create a DNS hostname and route any requests sent to this hostname to a pool of target your instances. You can add as many target instances to your load balancer as you like.

By default, your load balancer handles unencrypted traffic requests (HTTP) through port 80. You can set up HTTPS using a validated SSL/TLS certificate so that your load balancer can also handle encrypted traffic.

When any request is sent to your application, the load balancer sends the request to the healthy instances only.

Benefits of Load Balancer

Automated health checks

The Load Balancer automatically checks the health of target instances and distributes the traffic to the healthy target instances only.

Simple interface

Create load balancers, add and monitor target instances, and manage certificates in one place.

Highly available

Build highly available applications and websites by deploying target instances with Load Balancer.

Scalable

The load balancers scale to support variable web traffic. You can also add target instances manually to protect applications end-to-end from anticipated traffic spikes.

Secure

The instance manages all security policies on your behalf to ensure that application access is secured correctly and following the best practices.

Do I Really Need It?

You should use a load balancer when you have a website that has occasional spikes in traffic or hosts content that can create a lot of load on an instance when many visitors are using it at once. For example, if you have an image-heavy website, you can load balance the image requests with the other page requests. That way, your pages load faster and your users are happier.

You can use a load balancer to create a highly available website. High availability refers to how long your website or application stays up over a given time period. If you have ever experienced a site outage, then a load balancer might help you have more uptime. You can use a load balancer to make your application highly available by adding target instances that are distributed across multiple Availability Zones.

Fault tolerance is a related concept. If your site continues to function even after one of your instances or your database fails, it is considered tolerant. A load balancer can help you create a fault-tolerant application or website.

The traffic between the load balancer and the target instances is metered and counts toward your data transfer allowance for your instances, in the same way, that traffic in from and out to the internet is counted toward your data transfer allowance for the instances that are not behind a load balancer. Traffic into and out of your load balancer to the internet is not calculated toward the data transfer allowances for your instances.
What is the benefit of using Load Balancer?
The load balancer allows you to make your site/application highly available. By distributing traffic across the instances and pointing traffic to only healthy instances. It reduces the risk of your site/application going down due to an issue with the single instance. If you have load balancer setup for your multiple instances, your website/application can also accommodate the increases in web traffic and maintain good performance for your visitors during peak hours.
Can I use load balancers with the instances which are in different regions?

How does the load balancer deal with the traffic spikes?
The load balancer scales automatically to handle the spikes to your application without you having to adjust them manually. If your application experiences spike in traffic, the load balancer will automatically scale and continue to direct traffic to the instances efficiently.
How does the load balancer route traffic to the target instances?
The load balancer directs the traffic to your healthy instances based on a round robin algorithm.
Is it possible to assign one instance to multiple load balancers?
Yes, it is possible to assign a single instance to the multiple load balancers.
What happens to my VPS instances if I cancel the load balancer?
You can do this anytime. If you cancel the load balancer, all attached instances will continue to run normally as stand-alone instances. You will likely need to update your DNS records to direct traffic to one of your former target instances.
Which kind of requests does load balancer support?
The load balancer supports both HTTP and HTTPS connections.
