Free Load Balancer

These days I was looking for more details about load balancers and found some great tools I need to share with all of you - it´s a free load balancer!!



Excellent, but, what load balancer is?

Load balancing refers to efficiently distributing incoming network traffic across a group of backend servers, also known as a server farm or server pool.

Modern high‑traffic websites must serve hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of concurrent requests from users or clients and return the correct text, images, video, or application data, all in a fast and reliable manner. To cost‑effectively scale to meet these high volumes, modern computing best practice generally requires adding more servers.

A load balancer acts as the “traffic cop” sitting in front of your servers and routing client requests across all servers capable of fulfilling those requests in a manner that maximizes speed and capacity utilization and ensures that no one server is overworked, which could degrade performance. If a single server goes down, the load balancer redirects traffic to the remaining online servers. When a new server is added to the server group, the load balancer automatically starts to send requests to it.



OK, what're the features this load balancer provides me and what does this load balancer do?

➮ Free Licence Term;

Easy to install?

Pretty easy and very quick. Just do a download and - in my case, I'm using Virtual Box - import the image, run and wait for some seconds to boot the image properly as you can see on the screenshot below:


Open your browser, type your load balancer address and you're ready to go.
