Umbraco Load Balancing and High Availability Hosting Solutions

What is Load Balancing?

The simple answer is load balancing is a way to divide heavy traffic to your site across multiple servers. This ensures that your Umbraco website doesn't have issues due to large volumes of traffic. In more technical terms: load balancing improves the distribution of workloads across multiple computing resources, such as computers, a computer cluster, network links, central processing units, or disk drives. Load balancing aims to optimize resource use, maximize throughput, minimize response time, and avoid overload of any single resource. Using multiple components with load balancing instead of a single component may increase reliability and availability through redundancy. Load balancing usually involves dedicated software or hardware, such as a multilayer switch or a Domain Name System server process.

What is High Availability?

High Availability is for Umbraco sites that need to aim for 100% uptime and avoid downtime. A highly available Umbraco website absorbs fluctuations in availability, load, and temporary failures in dependent services and hardware. The application continues to perform acceptably, as defined by business requirements or application service-level agreements.
