Do Cloud Load Balancers support SSL Termination?


SSL Termination on Cloud Load Balancers is supported via the API and through the Cloud Control Panel.  SSL Termination allows users to have their secure traffic terminate at the load balancer with centralized certificate management. Features of this service are as follows:

  • SSL acceleration for improved throughput
  • Reduced CPU load at the application level for better performance 
  • HTTP/HTTPS session persistence  

Note: SSL Termination should not be used when transferring certain types of Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
