Maintain High-Availability Hosting
When traffic to your website suddenly spikes, will your servers be ready? That's where load balancers can help. If your infrastructure doesn't have the right load balancing hardware to spread a large influx of traffic across your servers, your infrastructure could be overwhelmed, slowing your websites down significantly or even taking them offline for a time.
A load balancer is a hardware or software appliance designed to spread traffic across multiple servers. It gives you much more granular control over where traffic goes and how it’s handled. Load balancers can also be deployed in a highly-available manner so there’s no single point of failure. At Codero, we use only the most reliable load balancing technology with the family of Kemp Load Balancers.
Benefits of Load Balancing:
- Distribute incoming traffic for peak performance: Share traffic across multiple available servers so no single point of failure can impact your website.
- Create a failsafe solution: Automatically bypass any failed server and use secondary servers to keep service protected even when challenged by server downtime due to server failure or server maintenance.
- Enhance output and efficiency: With a load balancer, multiple servers can function as a single server, meaning simultaneous requests can be accomplished more productively.
- Increase scalability: When traffic increases, you can add more servers behind the load balancer so more work gets done in the same amount of time.

Load balancing can also be accompanied by managed firewall to keep your server secure and safeguard against Internet threats before they reach your hosted server and data. Without firewall protection, the confidentiality of your data could be compromised. Even if a business does not lose valuable data during an attack, you can suffer downtime and loss of money from repairs of the computer system. Equally important, you could lose customers from your lack of availability to them. Managed hosting includes the option to customize your Load Balancing set-up and configuration.
Ensure business continuity by adding an Advanced Disaster Recovery Plan from Codero to help mitigate the risk of downtime.
