High Availability Loadbalancer Clusters

Written by Aidan | 14 September

We are delighted to now offer fully managed, highly available Load Balancer Clusters offering Layer 7, SSL termination and a range of enterprise features in a turn-key package. By deploying a load balancer cluster in front of your web or application cluster you can achieve 100% availability for your cloud applications and services

All loadbalancers are deployed and managed for you by dediserve and can scale seamlessly as you do. Using Dynamic health Monitoring active, passive and dynamic health checks we verify your servers are running to always direct your users to healthy servers. Our  loadbalancers can balance any TCP based traffic - HTTP/S, MySQL, SSH, Email, FTP in fact any service you wish to run.

Key Features Include:
  • SSL termination - offload SSL to your loadbalancer
  • Private Gigabit LAN - connects your loadbalancers to your servers (and your servers to each other)
  • Session Persistence - balancers maintain sessions by sending visitors always to the same server
  • Any-Port Balancing - if you can run a service, we can balance it
  • Floating IP4 and IP6 Addresses - your loadbalancers get IP4 and IP6 addresses, so your servers can use private IPs if you prefer
  • Wide range of balancing methods - Round robin, least load, RDP cookies or cookie insertion
  • Zero Downtime - Scale and work on servers, and scale your loadbalancers to handle more traffic (or less) without any downtime
  • Real-time statistics interface - to see what's happening, as it happens

Pricing starts at just € 20 / £ 15 / $ 22 per month for a full High Availability LoadBalancer Cluster
