Book Description

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 company's unique needs.

With this ebook, author Derek DeJonghe from 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 several options, including the use of the NGINX software load balancer.

This open access book is Complimented by Nginx. You can download Load Balancing in the Cloud ebook for free in PDF format (2.5 MB).
