Provides cross-region load balancing, including automatic multi-region failover. Cloud Load Balancing reacts instantaneously to changes in users, traffic, network, backend health, and other related conditions.
Cloud Load Balancing is a fully distributed, software-defined, managed service for all your traffic. Apply Cloud Load Balancing to all of your traffic: HTTP(S), TCP/SSL, and UDP.
Scale as your users and traffic grow. Easily handles huge, unexpected, and instantaneous spikes by diverting traffic to other regions in the world that can take traffic. Zero to full throttle in seconds.
Application Load Balancers can balance HTTP and HTTPS traffic across multiple backend instances, across multiple regions. Your entire app is available via a single global IP address, resulting in a simplified DNS setup. Application Load Balancers are scalable, fault-tolerant, require no pre-warming, and enable content-based load balancing. For HTTPS traffic, they provide SSL termination and load balancing.
Network Load Balancers are Layer 4 load balancers that can distribute traffic to back ends located either in a single region or across multiple regions. These load balancers are scalable, don't require pre-warming, and use health checks to help ensure that only healthy instances receive traffic. Available Network Load Balancers: Proxy Network Load Balancers and Passthrough Network Load Balancers.
SSL offload enables you to centrally manage SSL certificates and decryption. You can enable encryption between your load balancing layer and backends to ensure the highest level of security, with some additional overhead for processing on backends.
Cloud Load Balancing also includes advanced support features, such as IPv6 global load balancing, WebSockets, user-defined request headers, and protocol forwarding for private VIPs.
