If you are expecting high traffic to your website globally, then you got to use a load balancer. A robust cloud-based load balancing solution is a much better choice than a traditional hardware-based solution. Because it’s not just cost-effective, easier to use, and scalable – but also augments both traditional hardware-based load balancers as well as proprietary solutions offered by public cloud providers, ensuring that web assets always remain available and high-performing.
However, selecting the right solution requires an understanding of the challenges that load balancers solve — latency and downtime. Read this paper to explore what to look for in a cloud-based load balancing solution!
