Surges in traffic or data requests—even expected ones, can result in downtime. Stack Harbor’s Cloud Load Balancers allow you to distribute incoming requests across additional virtual machines to help maintain high-performance as traffic rises.
By dispersing incoming network traffic, load balancers optimize server resource use, maximize throughput, minimize response time and avoid overload of any single virtual machine. Using multiple VMs with load balancing increases reliability via redundancy and scale.
Load Balancers offer redundancy by providing increased failover protection and service distribution across multiple servers. Added redundancy allows users to remove unhealthy servers from a load balancing cluster while traffic is continuously routed by standby VMs.
Stack Harbor’s easy-to-use customer management interface, simplifies the process of deploying and managing your Load Balancers. Deploy, configure, manage ports or add/remove servers from your load balancing cluster all with the click of a button.
Stack Harbor’s Load Balancers are capable of distributing both incoming UDP and TCP requests across a load balancing cluster. By seamlessly handling both protocols, your traffic will be dynamically routed and intelligently distributed.
