What are the benefits of using SSL Termination on the Cloud Load Balancer?


With SSL Termination the traffic is decrypted at the Cloud Load Balancer, and unencrypted traffic can now be distributed to one or more Cloud Servers to be processed

Following are other benefits:

  • The ability to configure a load balancer that accepts both secure & unsecured traffic, or secure traffic only
  • Can be a less expensive than a dedicated F5 load balancer solution
  • Another alternative to using HA Proxy with Cloud Servers
