Server Load Balancing (SLB) is a technology that distributes high traffic sites among several servers using a network-based hardware or software-defined appliance. And when load balancing across multiple geo locations, the intelligent distribution of traffic is referred to as global server load balancing (GSLB). The servers can be on premises in a company’s own data centers, or hosted in a private cloud or the public cloud.
Server load balancers intercepts traffic for a website and reroutes that traffic to servers.
Server Load Balancing (SLB) provides network services and content delivery using a series of load balancing algorithms. It prioritizes responses to the specific requests from clients over the network. Server load balancing distributes client traffic to servers to ensure consistent, high-performance application delivery.
Server load balancing ensures application delivery, scalability, reliability and high availability.
