Load balancers are often used to ensure high availability and fault tolerance for web applications. In our cloud environment, you can distribute incoming traffic across multiple instances of your application deployed across different availability zones. If one instance or data center experiences downtime due to hardware failure or other issues, the load balancer automatically redirects traffic to healthy instances, minimizing service disruptions. This use case is critical for mission-critical applications where uninterrupted availability is essential.
Scalability and Elasticity
Load balancers play a key role in scaling web applications dynamically to handle fluctuating traffic loads. With cloud scaling features, you can configure load balancers to add or remove instances based on real-time traffic demands. During traffic spikes, new instances can be provisioned and added to the load balancer pool to maintain optimal performance. Conversely, during periods of low traffic, surplus instances can be removed to save costs. This use case is ideal for e-commerce websites and any application with variable traffic patterns.
