Load Balancing Service

With the ability to distribute traffic among multiple servers, our service ensures that your customers and employees get the information they need, when they need it.

Companies today depend on their applications to increase productivity and reduce the cost of doing business so maintaining availability to these applications is critical. However, it is often difficult to predict the number of requests that will be issued to a server. Globix’ Load Balancing Service is configured to solve these complex traffic routing issues to ensure your customers, employees, and partners get the information they need, when they need it.

Our Load Balancing Service is based on industry-leading technology. The service automatically distributes traffic among multiple servers, sending requests to the least loaded server in the dedicated server cluster. If a server experiences a problem, it is taken out of the cluster and future traffic is not directed to it until it comes back online.

Unlike software load balancers, which can overwhelm the CPU, our service is built with an ASIC-based hardware architecture that processes and forwards layer two through layer four traffic at wire speed to provide higher throughput for increased traffic performance. And unlike pure hardware load balancers, our solution runs unique software to handle the complexities of layer seven traffic such as rate-shaping, ssl acceleration, and compression.
