Load Balancers

High Performance, Scalable Cloud Traffic Management.

What you’ll get

Having your websites and applications run during high traffic hours can be very challenging. If not appropriately managed, quick outbursts in online traffic can cause disrupting outages to your users, which may result in loss of revenue.

Based on the OpenStack Octavia project, our Cloud Load Balancers ensure optimal application and content delivery by distributing workloads across multiple computing resources and instances. Eliminate interruption by scaling your applications quickly and easily from your dashboard using automatic or on-demand scaling.

Customizable Traffic Management

Users can configure their preferred load splitting method.

  • Round Robin

    Users can split their workload based on the next available machine.

  • Source IP

    Users can choose to return to the same server each time based on the load balancer, knowing from where they are entering.

Customizable Traffic Management

Multiple SSL Encryption Options

Users can choose from multiple different SSL encryptions.


    The load balancer can receive your request, send it to the server and send back the response.

  • TCP

    With this method, there’s no need to set up a load balancer SSL as no request is needed, it passes straight through.

  • UDP

    Avoid latency with this connectionless, lightweight protocol.

    OpenStack’s load balancer service can be configured to run health checks, ensuring unhealthy and unresponsive servers won’t get any traffic.
