Watch principal site reliability engineer, Michela Toscano, walk you through the mechanics of load balancing in various use cases. Also, learn how to determine the right solution for your situation, with details on how to actually set up and configure two common, powerful load balancing solutions.

Public cloud platforms provide load balancing tools that are simple to use and deploy for web services, APIs, and other applications but may not be enough in an enterprise environment. Such use cases often require greater visibility and control — more comprehensive logging and telemetry, more sophisticated session management and request routing. Tighter integration with other key services like web application firewalls and the static asset cache are important as well.

Do you need a load balancer?

You need to deploy your own load balancer if you want flexibility traffic routing adjustments, filtering, caching and need to make other configurations on the fly. You get added security – add TLS/SSL termination, network firewall, and, or WAF, block or filter anything at the edge.

It can be lot easier than you might think. So start learning to build your own load balancer by watching the replay here.
