Simple SSL

Hosting multiple secure domains couldn’t be simpler. Built-in certificate management lets you easily import existing SSL certificates which can then be assigned to the right frontend as needed.

Network Transfer Pool enabled

Load Balancer benefits from our Network Transfer Pool allowing you to forget about data transfer costs and focus on developing your applications.

Ideal solutions

Perfect for many use cases

Load balancing websites

The most common use case for Load Balancers is exactly what the name implies, distributing the incoming connections between 2 or more backend application servers. Using the customisable load balancing methods from roundrobin to least connection, you can make sure your application servers share the workload appropriately.

Building resilience

While common solutions of load balancing allow developers to build resilience in the backend, the load balancer itself can often become a single point of failure. Not so with UpCloud’s Load Balancer! Not only does the Load Balancer benefit from our N+1 redundancy, but it also allows running two concurrent Load Balancer nodes for the ultimate resilient cloud infrastructure!

Securing services

Load Balancer enables easy SSL usage via built-in certificate bundle management. Just drop in your SSL certificates and enable HTTPS connectivity. Furthermore, the frontend configuration rules allow fine-grain control of incoming requests akin to a firewall. And behind the Load Balancer, all traffic is secured using our SDN Private Networks.

Frequently asked questions

What balancing algorithms does Load Balancer support?

The currently supported load balancing algorithms include round-robin, least connections, source IP, and hostname matching.

Can the Load Balancer be used with backends in different data centres?

Load Balancer uses our SDN private networks for connecting to the backend servers. As such, it is currently limited to working within any single data centre. However, as we develop the SDN functionality, cross DC connectivity will become available.

Does Load Balancer use my Network Transfer Pool?

Yes! Your Load Balancer instances will fully benefit from your network transfer capacity bundled with your other cloud services.

How are maintenance operations taken care of and do they require downtime?

Updates are performed as rolling updates, meaning zero downtime for multi-node services.
