Zero Downtime from the loadbalancer experts
Since 2003, Loadbalancer.org has provided reliable, versatile and cost-effective load balancers engineered to improve the availability of your most critical IT applications
A load balancer is simply a device that sends internet traffic to a group of application servers with an even load distribution. Their key advantage over DNS is that they can ensure the server is responding and that it’s actually giving the correct response!
Loadbalancer.org appliances enable two or more servers to be combined into a cluster. This enables inbound requests to be distributed across multiple servers which provides improved performance, reliability and resilience. Appliances can also be deployed as a clustered pair (our recommended solution) which creates a highly-available configuration.
What makes Loadbalancer.org different?
The Loadbalancer.org appliance is one of the most flexible load balancers on the market. The design allows different load balancing modules to utilize the core high availability framework. Multiple load balancing methods can be used at the same time, or in combination with each other.
Layer 4-7 Load Balancer
One of the most flexible load balancers on the market. The design of the appliance allows different load balancing modules to utilize the core high availability framework of the appliance. Multiple load balancing methods can be used at the same time or in combination with each other.
DDOS Attack Prevention
Industrial strength protection, for peace-of-mind. Denial of Service (DOS) attacks can be especially effective against certain types of web application. If an application is highly dynamic or database-intensive it can be remarkably simple to degrade or cripple the functionality of a site. Simply mitigate single-source IP DOS attacks using our HAProxy.
Global Load Balancing
Multi-site failover with integrated GSLB, for unlimited scalability. When used in conjunction with the usual failover and high availability features of the appliance, GSLB extends the options available to create a highly available load balanced environment.
Load Balancing Algorithms
Several different load balancing algorithms are supported. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages and it depends on the specific application which is the most appropriate to use. Usually the default method Weighted Least Connection is a good solution which works well in most situations.
Web Application Firewall
Fully integrated & secure WAF, for reliable application protection The WAF is based on the ModSecurity Open Source Project and includes a default vulnerability rule-set that is based on the “OWASP top 10”. This defines the top 10 areas of vulnerability that can affect Web Applications.
Our proxy engine is the industry standard, so you’re in good company A reverse proxy accepts a request from a client, forwards it to a server that can fulfill it, and returns the server’s response to the client. A load balancer distributes incoming client requests among a group of servers, in each case returning the response from the selected server to the appropriate client.
A pair of load balancers in a high-availability configuration communicate via a heartbeat to ensure that the master node stays active. Should the master node suffer a failure, the slave will immediately take over any resources hosted on the shared floating IP address.
Scalable performance, for effortless security. All of the layer 4 and Layer 7 load balancing methods can handle SSL traffic in pass through mode, where the backend servers do the decryption and encryption of the traffic. This is very scalable as you can just add more servers to the cluster to gain higher Transactions Per Second (TPS).
