LBaaS (Load Balancer-as-a-Service)

Load Balancing and Failover

Incapsula LBaaS supports a variety of load balancing algorithms, with or without a persistence override option, to optimize traffic distribution across servers, maximize application performance and reduce server load.

For organizations operating multiple data centers, or hybrid cloud environments, global server load balancing (GSLB) ensures high availability and reliable application performance.

  • Automatic failover between primary and secondary sites.
  • Continuous health and performance monitoring.
  • Send requests based on performance or geography.

Questions and Answers

Load balancing increases overall computing efficiency, raises overall performance, and minimizes downtime.
In case of global load balancing a workload is distributed planet-wide across multiple remotely positioned geo-locations.
The object of failover is to ensure that mission-critical applications or systems are constantly available, regardless of the extent of the fault.
High availability planning is designed to ensure system uptime, and disaster recovery is designed to minimize or eliminate downtime.
