Expensive load balancer reliability, automation and features, without the expensive load balancer! GSLB as a service puts your response policy into DNS, aliased to your server farms, and health monitored. Should transit or server availability go down in an area, DNS stops sending users to that region. You get closest geographic node service for your users, plus transparent service failover. Defined pools can be set to smooth out traffic distribution across regions, and failover to spot market priced extra capacity is automated in case of traffic spikes. Start a demo.
|GSLB DNS Distribution|
Unlike physical load balancer systems (Barracuda, F5), you do not need to update a load balancer at each node manually, which introduces the risk of operator error. Once we have defined your pools and health checks, and optionally, your failover supplier, you CNAME your subdomain to our GSLB service and your users will be directed to the closest available server in your network.

* - automation of failover supplier (ScaleEngine or Amazon usually) requires additional setup and monitoring, as well as available standby capacity.
