Securing a Web Application with AWS Application Load Balancer

Stackery

If you’re still using an Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Virtual Machine, enjoy this very useful tutorial on load balancing. That’s what I’m using AWS Application Load Balancer (“ALB”) for, even though I have only a single instance at the moment so there’s no actual load balancing going on.

How a China-Based Bare Metal Service Provider Tackled Kubernetes Load Balancing

The New Stack

Specific to bare metal, for example, Kubernetes platforms lack viable load balancing capabilities. The main issue, he said, with open source load balancing on bare metal is how backend workloads are typically exposed using the load balancer in a Kubernetes cluster.

Simplified NGINX Load Balancing with Loadcat

Toptal

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

Cloud-Native vs Traditional Application Development

RapidValue

Both traditional and cloud native applications make use of load balancers, but they differ significantly when and where they come in to play. Users hit a balancer as they arrive and are redirected to the server. Their load balancers don’t need to be as sophisticated.

How do Azure Scale Sets work?

Spiceworks

Let's say I want to configure IIS to automatically load balance traffic across multiple, scalable instances. I'm currently exploring Azure scale sets, and I'm curious as to how this would work. I can RDP into each instance individually (using the private IP), but does that mean each instance has to be manually configured, or do changes made to one instance replicate among all instances? Thanks

Changing the default RDP port on Azure VMs

Spiceworks

Hello, I am looking for another option on how I can change the default RDP port on our Azure VM aside from using Load Balancer. I follow this instruction very carefully ( [link] ) however, after I've applied everything I can't seems to connect to the VM via RDP. I did setup another VM on the same Virtual Network and I was able to RDP using the private IP and the new port 5605 which I've set on the listening port.
