SmartCLOUD™ TAB (Traffic and Application Balancer) is a full-featured cloud-based load balancing solution (Local & Global Server Load Balancing), which can boost applications and servers’ performance by up to 3X.
Whether you are a small business or a big enterprise, a failed application server can be too expensive. Your customers will turn to the competitor website while your systems and employees will be sitting idle. The loss you incur will take time to be recovered, but wouldn’t you want to settle on a solution which can avoid such an incident in the future? Load balancing can be used to minimize the risk of a server failure and help you considerably improve customer experience. But many businesses ask us if they should really consider load balancing.
Load balancing helps you distribute the network or application traffic to more than one server in order to improve reliability and make way for higher capacity. By using load balancers, you will be able to spread your network traffic over a number of servers running concurrently. This ensures that a single server does not have to bear the pressure of all the network traffic.
At the same time, load balancers identify server failures and direct traffic to other servers making it possible for your business to run without facing the impact of the failed server. This is why load balancing is being considered by more businesses.
Local and global
Local load balancing occurs when you direct traffic with the help of load balancers to different servers in the same data center. Global load balancing becomes more complex with the traffic moving between different data centers. While local load balancers are easier to operate, global load balancing reduces the risk of keeping everything in one data center. The capacity of your business and the traffic will play a role when it comes to choosing which kind of load balancing will be suitable for your business. We can help you analyze this.
Load balancers can be used for hardware or for software, or you can use them for both. The size of your load balancer will depend on the hardware and software that it will be supporting. If your business scales up, then you will be required to buy a bigger load balancer.
Cloud load balancers help in optimizing the programs that you may be running on a cloud by distributing the cloud service requests across the cloud service provider’s servers.
Load balancing may seem like an additional cost but keeping the advantages in mind; you will realize that load balancers help a business improve productivity and customer experience. Additionally, cloud load balancing services also ensure that server farms are utilized more efficiently. The load balancers also conduct health checks on cloud apps as well.
Ideally, businesses consider using at least two load balancers so that business operations do not suffer even if one of the load balancers fails. The more load balancers you place, the more smoothly your applications will work. Our services include consultation with respect to the use of load balancers and to establish the size and number of load balancers that will be ideal for your business.
Now let us look at all these factors and once again consider if you should consider load balancing for your business. The first thing is to establish the importance of customer experience in your business and the extent of loss that you may suffer if a server fails. This will help you identify if a load balancer is necessary or not. If you find that a load balancer can help you reduce the risk posed to your business by server failures, then we can help you find the best way to get started.
