What is Load-Balancing and how does it help?
Network load balancing is a way of ensuring that every server within a network is able to operate at its optimum level by making sure work is distributed evenly across all available “nodes,” or machines, on a network. A form of balancing is always taking place as different kinds of web traffic make their way from one side of the country to the other, or even all the way around the world. As of right now, all internet service providers treat every form of traffic equally, so in theory, traffic is always routed across the fastest, most effective path.
The load balancer that works with your own internal traffic is very similar in concept. A combination of software and hardware is used to evaluate the work being done on your servers. When you are using a cluster or cloud server environment, VPS, or other extensible network configuration, the workload is automatically shifted from one server to other available servers. This allows the nodes in your configuration to share the work, ensuring that each machine will perform better and do more. This leads to higher performance, uptime, and stability overall.
Network Load-Balancing and the future of your business
Effective balancing technologies are key to helping your business thrive, especially when you rely on your web presence for eCommerce or other intensive applications. When you use an inferior service that does not provide cloud-oriented balancing, your server can easily become overwhelmed under the strain of a sudden surge in traffic. You know that “going viral” can give a great temporary boost to your business, but what would happen if that boost translated into a nightmare of low performance and website downtime? Balancing ensures that won’t happen!
Balancing also has several other long term implications for the way your website behaves. At Crucial Cloud Hosting, we strive to ensure that your site will be scalable, meaning it will always be ready to grow with your needs. Our Linux-friendly balancing technology is based upon methods pioneered by Cisco Systems, one of the world leaders in business-class networking solutions.
