Managing online traffic, and especially spikes or abnormal volumes, can be a challenge.
BMIT’s Load Balancer as a Service provides an effective and highly reliable solution to distribute traffic effectively, so no single device gets overwhelmed. Additionally, it provides a range of features and functionalities to deliver a faster, high performance user experience, while maximising the efficiency and capacity of web and application servers.
We will not share your set-up with other clients therefore eliminating any potential ripple effects of shared infrastructures. Deployment will take place over high performance servers, set in a cluster, therefore minimising downtime risks.
BMIT Load Balancer allows the use of a wide variety of algorithms and techniques that can be used to balance load based on different criteria (e.g. can send more requests to higher spec machines). It also allows the safe draining of servers for easy maintenance/ uninterrupted service.
You can limit the total bandwidth which a set of connections can use based on criteria such as account type or location. This can be used to stop a popular site or application from taking up so much bandwidth that the other sites or applications become unavailable.
Off-loading SSL/TLS key exchanges and decryption to the BMIT Load Balancer frees up the back-end servers’ resources for generating content and responding to user requests,. Content can be re-encrypted for secure forwarding of requests to the back-end infrastructure.
BMIT Load Balancer has unmatched scale and performance, and is able to scale-up with the latest generation of multi-core CPUs, and scale out with N+M clustering for reliability and throughput.
BMIT Load Balancer can compress content returned to the client rather than have that workload undertaken by the back- end servers. Compression of content can result in bandwidth being used more efficiently. Offloading this workload from the back-end servers can enable it to serve requests faster.
BMIT Load Balancer can restrict the number of requests (per min or sec) to a service, from either all or a set of clients. This can stop a small group of intensive users (including search engine and spiders) hogging a service, leading to a poor user experience.
BMIT Load Balancer can scale very easily, across different IT environments, ensuring that it can always scale up to match and support demand for an application or a service.
BMIT Load Balancer can enforce an IP black/white list and limit the rate of connections to a particular service. It can also enforce rules on HTTP content (e.g. enforce RFC compliance) and help protect against malicious attacks, such as Denial of Service.
Ensures all requests from a client go to the same server, enabling application data to persist throughout a session without using cookies (e.g. an e-commerce shopping basket).
What distinguishes BMIT from other service providers is our ability to offer a personalised and customised service to each of our customers.
