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.

Feature: Distribute Traffic Geographically with Global Load Balancing
Businesses who rely on constant availability can benefit from global load balancing, available for an additional fee on both our Managed Shared and Managed Dedicated Load Balancers. Allowing the distribution of traffic across locations based on availability, performance, and user-defined rules, global load balancing can be instantly deployed using our Storm Servers and used in conjunction with the Liquid Web Content Delivery Network. Global Load Balancing is configurable in two modes:
Datacenter A gets nominated as the active location for each service that is being load balanced. Datacenter B remains idle until Datacenter A goes offline or reports as down, then Datacenter B takes over as the active location. This allows for automatic failover and all requests are routed to the formerly passive, now active, Datacenter B.
Datacenter A and Datacenter B are both nominated as active and all requests are load balanced to either location depending on geographic proximity of the client.
Managed Shared is a software solution running on redundant clusters at each one of our Datacenters in different geographic regions and is available for an additional fee. While Managed Dedicated Global Load Balancing is deployed on servers you choose, in clusters of two or as individual servers, with appropriate licensing.
Both Managed Shared and Managed Dedicated provide business continuity, improved speeds, and enhanced customer experiences even if one location experiences an outage.
