How Load Balancers Improve Scalability

Load balancing functions as both failover and the simplest method for scaling out a website or web application. As customers visit your website, they are first connected to either Shared or Dedicated Load Balancers. The load balancers then direct each customer to one of the web servers in your infrastructure by using one of many available traffic optimization algorithms. As traffic to your web application increases, new web servers can be quickly and easily added to the pool of load balanced servers.
