Load Balancing Services
Atlantic.Net Firewall and Load Balancing service can introduce a wide range of key features designed to further improve functionality and help ensure all services remain online:
- Round Robin – this simple algorithm sends incoming traffic to the next available server in a load balancing cluster, this is done in a sequential sequence such as node 1, node 2, node 3.
- Static Round Robin – this method allocates a weighting number to a server, or a priority to a particular server, therefore incoming traffic will get distributed to the preferred node(s) in the cluster, if available.
- Least connections – the load balancer will monitor the number of open connections for each server, and sends the incoming request to the least busy server.
- IP source – connections are distributed to the servers based on the source IP address. This is a great method for geolocation load balancing. If a web server fails and is taken out of service, the distribution changes. As long as all servers are running, a given client IP address will always go to the same web server.

- Sticky Sessions – this feature is an efficiency measure that enables users connected to the web server to interact with the same web server at all times. This prevents the same content from being open for the same client on multiple different web servers, therefore reducing overhead.
- Health Checks – this vital feature is when the load balancer reaches out to the servers in the load balancing pool to check availability and health. Any issues are flagged, and failing server nodes are bypassed until any outstanding issues are resolved.
- SSL Termination – this technique is when SSL encryption is decoded on the load balancer prior to the request reaching the web server. This is an effective method used to improve performance and lessen the workload requests to the backend nodes.
- Multi-Port Balancing - this advanced technique allows users to channel all traffic configured for a specific application port to one or more servers. It offers application developers greater performance capability.
- Connection Throttling - this feature protects the load balancing pool when specific incoming requests are demanding significant resources. This could be caused by certain applications demanding excessive bandwidth which may impact the entire cluster.
