Real-world application performance can be unpredictable. To ensure maximum uptime and reliability, the CenturyLink Cloud offers a portfolio of load balancers to meet the unique requirements of your apps.
Less complex applications can deploy shared load balancers, while more involved apps can use dedicated load balancers that support advanced layer 4 and layer 7 rules. SSL offloading is also available from 100 Mbps to 500 Mbps.
Included with every customer deployment – a shared load balancer (round-robin configuration) for up to 3 VMs (using a single VIP). Supports up to 10 Mbps of managed traffic.
Cloud load balancing from CenturyLink uses Citrix® NetScaler®, the industry’s leading web application delivery solution.
Includes L4 load balancing and L7 content switching, as well as database load balancing; supports IPv6.
Self-Service Shared Load Balancers
Create load balancer configurations that use either “least connection” or “round robin” routing policies, and either standard or sticky persistence. Support for up to 10Mbps of managed traffic and 10 VMs for a single VIP.
