Load Balancing

Definition updated on November 2023

What is load balancing?

The process of evenly dispersing network traffic among a pool of resources that support an application is known as load balancing. Modern programs need to handle many users at once, and each user needs to receive precise text, videos, photographs, and other data promptly and reliably. To meet such large traffic levels, the majority of apps use many resource servers with duplicate data. A load balancer serves as an invisible middleman between the user and the server group, ensuring that all resource servers are utilized evenly. By speeding up responses and lowering network latency, load balancers enhance the performance of applications. To further secure your online applications, load balancers are equipped with built-in security measures. When attackers bombard an application server with millions of simultaneous requests, resulting in server failure, they are a powerful technique to counter distributed denial of service attacks.
