Intelligent Network Traffic Steering with DNS
Network conditions are extremely volatile and can throw off your multi-cloud configurations within seconds. ITO, our latency load balancing solution, uses both GeoDNS and latency monitoring to calculate the closest and best-performing web server for your users. This way, your users will always be steered to the fastest and geographically relevant resource.
DNS Load Balancing Distributes your query traffic across multiple resources based on your resource availability and performance.Learn More→
Load balancing is defined as the process of distributing network / application traffic across multiple web servers. Load balancers sit between devices and backend web servers, that receive and distribute incoming requests to the ideal available server that is able to answer the request. This method ensures that no single server bears too much demand. By spreading the traffic more evenly, load balancing improves application responsiveness and increases availability of websites for the end user.
All you have to do is specify your vendors’ hostnames, add monitoring checks for each one, and we’ll do the rest. Our latency load balancers will update your DNS records to point to the fastest responding instance(s) as often as every thirty seconds.
Choose how much response times have to deviate before the record is refreshed.
Configure your load balancers by region. Create multiple load balancing methods for each of the five available regions.
Return multiple endpoints each time the record is queried in a round robin fashion. Ideal for multi-CDN or multi-cloud environments. With active health checking in place, you can receive alerts whenever the record is updated.
