Global Load Balancing
Perfect balancing act, zero investment.
Ben Network Operations Manager
If you run an international business, the benefit of balancing your traffic across all of your available servers is immediate and obvious. But setting up the necessary systems from scratch would prove astronomically expensive.
PEER 1 Hosting Global Load Balancing not only delivers the benefits of this traffic rationalisation, but does so at no extra expense in capital equipment, software or personnel.
We offer a choice of three different solutions. Choose any or all, according to your needs.
Routes traffic to optimum server
This solution allows the administrator to define load balancing configurations for content servers that reside in one or more geographical locations.
Traffic Controller uses weighted methodologies to re-route traffic to the most appropriate servers and Data Centres by dynamically changing responses to DNS requests.
Establish custom probes based on your specific requirements (e.g. to support proprietary applications that communicate on non-standard ports)
Re-routes traffic automatically from overstretched/failed servers to the most responsive alternatives
This solution provides fully-integrated monitoring, notification and failover services. Should a server exceed the failure thresholds that you define, SiteBacker automatically changes the DNS response record for that server, sending its traffic to another server.
Once the original server is back online, SiteBacker returns the DNS response record to its original configuration.
Balances load according to originator's geographical location
Directional DNS routes traffic to the servers with the most location-relevant content across geographically disparate Data Centres. Traffic is load balanced on the basis of the originator's geographical location.
- Geo IP targeting delivers content based on the site visitor's location
