Cloud Load Balancing

For companies operating in a digital environment, downtime is no longer an option. Users expect websites and applications alike to be up and running the moment they need them. If your site crashes often or runs at a snail’s pace, your chances of consistently losing users are high.

However, with cloud-based load balancing services from Ovatek, you can increase the reliability and performance of your organization’s sites and applications no matter where your data centers are located. 

Cloud-based load balancing allows a site or application to distribute incoming user traffic across multiple servers. In doing so, you can lower the probability of server overloads that result in crashes, thus increasing uptime and encouraging smooth traffic management even in the midst of heavy traffic situations.

The digital landscape constantly shifts, and staying ahead requires embracing and anticipating change. In SEO, foresight is the ultimate competitive advantage.

What Is Cloud-Based Load Balancing?

Unmatched Performance

To illustrate how load balancing works, let’s look at an example. Imagine an application that runs on just one server. That application brings in 500 user requests every second. Since all 500 requests will be processed through one server, the application’s performance may slow down, or the server could crash.

Now, imagine that the same application runs on two servers. The 500 user requests will then be split between the two servers, lowering the amount of processing that takes place on each individual server and enabling both to perform at higher speeds.

Essentially, the application will run twice as fast with two servers. Splitting the requests between four servers will allow it to run four times as fast. So, the more servers the application utilizes, the faster it can run and the better it will perform.

Cloud-Based Vs. Hardware-Based

In your search for the most efficient way to manage your incoming user traffic, you may have come across two types of load balancers: hardware-based and cloud-based. Hardware-based load balancing typically involves a static installation of physical hardware at an organization’s on-premises data center. Cloud-based load balancing, on the other hand, utilizes cloud infrastructure to distribute traffic without the need to install physical hardware. This type of load balancing is usually offered as a service.

Key Features

Here is a list of important features to look for in a cloud-based load-balancing service:

Cost Efficiency

Perhaps one of the most important benefits of using a cloud-based load-balancing service is the cost savings. Startup businesses may not have the funds to install the physical appliances required to carry out hardware-based load balancing. The upfront costs of installation can be quite high, and ongoing maintenance or repairs will only continue to drain more funds in the future.

Cloud-based load balancing usually follows a subscription-based model that allows organizations to pay for the resources as they use them. There are no large upfront investments or long-term commitments to physical hardware. Organizations will save money by only paying for the resources they regularly need and use.

Web Security Components

  • Implementation and Configuration: Install and configure the WAF to protect the website against common threats like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and more.
  • Custom Security Rules: Develop custom security rules tailored to the specific needs and risks of the client’s website.
  • Continuous Monitoring: Actively monitor web traffic to detect and block malicious activities, ensuring real-time protection.
  • Regular Updates and Patches: Keep the WAF software up to date with the latest security patches and threat definitions.
  • Incident Response and Reporting: Provide immediate response to security incidents, along with detailed reports for client awareness and compliance purposes
  • DDoS Risk Assessment: Evaluate the website’s vulnerability to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and establish protection levels required.
  • Protection Implementation: Deploy DDoS protection measures to defend against both large-scale and more sophisticated DDoS attacks.
  • Traffic Analysis and Filtering: Continuously analyze incoming traffic to differentiate between legitimate users and attack traffic, filtering out malicious traffic.
  • Scalability and Resilience Planning: Ensure the DDoS protection scales with the website’s growth and can withstand various attack sizes and types.
  • Real-Time Alerts and Response: Set up real-time alerts for DDoS attack detection and ensure quick response to mitigate attacks.
  • DNS Setup and Configuration: Configure Cloud DNS settings for optimal performance and security, including proper record management and routing.
  • DNS Security Enhancements: Implement security enhancements like DNSSEC to protect against DNS spoofing and other DNS-related attacks.
  • Performance and Uptime Monitoring: Monitor DNS performance and uptime, ensuring fast and reliable website accessibility.
  • Redundancy and Failover Planning: Establish DNS redundancy and failover mechanisms to maintain website availability in case of DNS server failures.
  • Regular DNS Audits: Conduct regular audits of DNS configurations and records to ensure ongoing security and efficiency.
  • Load Balancer Configuration: Set up and configure load balancers to distribute traffic evenly across multiple servers, enhancing website performance and reliability.

  • Load Balancing Strategy Optimization: Continuously assess and optimize load balancing strategies to meet changing traffic patterns and website needs.
  • DNS Filtering: Set up DNS filtering to block access to malicious websites and prevent phishing attacks.
  • Policy Configuration and Management: Develop and manage DNS policies to control website and internet access based on business requirements.
  • Threat Intelligence Integration: Integrate threat intelligence feeds to identify and block known malicious domains and IPs.
  • User Access Controls: Implement access controls to manage user access to different types of web content based on company policies.

Each service category involves a blend of advanced technology, strategic planning, and continuous monitoring to adapt to evolving security challenges.

Scalability and Flexibility

Cloud-based load-balancing services enable organizations to scale up and down to meet demand more rapidly than the hardware-based alternative. If your application suddenly explodes onto a new market in another region of the country or world, you want to be able to cater to those users with multiple servers, especially in areas close to them.

A hardware-based approach to load balancing may require the installation of more physical appliances before that dream can become a reality. But, with cloud-based load balancing, you can tap into pre-existing data centers in those locations to immediately meet the demands of new users. Similarly, you can avoid large, unnecessary investments in physical hardware for regions where the appliance or site experiences a lull in demand.
