Today IT Infrastructure is expected to provide high performance, Availability, Security and Scalability. The availability of applications is often threatened by Server and Network overloads. Uneven resource utilization results in low capacity resources being overloaded, while other available resources remain underutilized.
Load balancing of Servers is the solution to enhance performance and ensure high availability of applications. Server load balancing is the process of distributing service requests across a group of servers. It provides layer 4-7 traffic management to ensure optimal distribution of traffic loads. Load balancing policies can be defined based on layer-four traffic information (protocol and port number), as well as application-layer information such as URLs, application data type or cookie value.
Expert consultants of SKY 7 employ multiple methods to monitor the health of application resources so that traffic can be dynamically directed to available application servers.
Server load balancing makes multiple servers appear as a single server – a single virtual service by transparently distributing user requests among the servers.
Application availability is the key benefit of server load balancing. If an application or server fails, load balancing can automatically redistribute end-user service requests to other servers within a server farm or to servers in another location.
