About the Ebook

The use of redundant servers has long been a solution for meeting sudden spikes in demand, machine failures, and outages. Cloud services greatly reduce the cost and hassle of provisioning redundant equipment and load balancers and give you the ability to deal with separate network, application, and client‑side loads. But today there are many options to consider, and you have to determine which cloud service (or services) will meet your unique needs.

With this ebook, author Derek DeJonghe of RightBrain Networks delivers a practical guide to load balancing services in the cloud. In this dynamic environment, where machines are frequently provisioned and decommissioned to meet user demand, you need a load balancer that can intelligently distribute traffic. This ebook walks you through the strategy via several options, including the use of the NGINX software load balancer with AWS Network Load Balancer (AWS NLB) and global load balancing with AWS’ Route 53 offering.
