Load Balancing


Load balancing is the process of distributing incoming network traffic or load evenly and efficiently across a group of servers. They are specifically used to increase capacity and reliability of applications and improve the overall performance of applications by decreasing the load on servers.


Websites with high traffic are expected to serve hundreds of thousands of simultaneous requests from users. The website must provide the requested application data including text, images, and videos in a quick and reliable manner. To meet these high traffic demands, computing best practice usually involve adding more servers.


A load balancer acts as a regulator directing the traffic to your server with great efficiency. It is capable of routing all requests from users in a highly efficient manner across all servers while ensuring that none of the servers are overloaded which could affect the performance of the system. In the instance of a single server going down, the load balancer redirects traffic to the remaining online servers.


The key responsibilities of a load balancer are to distribute client requests or network load resourcefully across multiple servers and ensure high availability by ensuring that traffic is directed to only those servers that are online. The load balancers offer the flexibility to add or remove servers according to the demands of the situation.
