Cloud Load Balancing- Facilitating Performance & Efficiency of Cloud Resources


Cloud load balancing is the process of distributing workloads and computing resources within a cloud environment. Cloud load balancing also involves hosting the distribution of workload traffic within the internet. Its advantages over conventional load balancing of on?premises

One Year of Load Balancing


From the beginning at Algolia, we decided not to place any load balancing infrastructure between our users and our search API servers. This leads to a server load that matches the round-robin DNS resolution. DNS-based load balancing limitations.

Advanced Load Balancing and Sticky Sessions with Ambassador, Envoy and Kubernetes

Daniel Bryant

release notes , we have recently added early access support for advanced ingress load balancing and session affinity in the Ambassador API gateway, which is based on the underlying production-hardened implementations within the Envoy Proxy. It’s been my experience that how load balancing is implemented within Kubernetes Services is not always intuitive. Endpoint Routing and Load Balancing In Ambassador 0.52, we introduced a new set of controls for load balancing.

Simplified NGINX Load Balancing with Loadcat


NGINX, a sophisticated web server, offers high performance load balancing features, among many other capabilities. However, there is something interesting about tools that configure other tools, and it may be even easier to configure an NGINX load balancer if there was a tool for it. In this article, Toptal engineer Mahmud Ridwan demonstrates how easy it is to build a simple tool with a web-based GUI capable of configuring NGINX as a load balancer
