Dedicated (static) IP address
Assigns every load balancer a dedicated static IP address that you can selectively share with other load balancers under a single account. IP addresses are persistent and won't change while a load balancer is active.
Offloads CPU-intensive public key encryption and decryption from application servers to the load balancer. Also provides HTTP to HTTPS redirect to help ensure transactions between the load balancer and client are secured.
Supports a variety of load balancing protocols on internal and public interfaces, including HTTP, HTTPS, LDAP, LDAPS, IMAP, FTP, POP3, POP3S, SMTP, TCP, TCP Client-First, UDP, SFTP and MySQL
Advanced access control
Enables you to easily manage who can and can't access the services that are exposed through the load balancer.
Simplifies log management by enabling Apache-style access logs (for HTTP-based protocol traffic) or connection and transfer logging (for all other traffic). Automatically sorts and aggregates log data, and sends the results to your Cloud Files account. This makes it convienent to access your raw data for performance tuning or web analytics.
Advanced algorithmic routing
Cloud Load Balancers route traffic to backend nodes in the most optimal way for your application. Algorithm support includes round-robin, weighted round-robin, least connections, weighted least connections, and random.
Directs future requests to the same node in your load balancing pool. This can be enabled for all protocols.
Imposes user-defined limits on the number of connections per IP address to mitigate malicious or abusive traffic to your application or website.
Primary/secondary node management
Prevents downtime by seamlessly routing traffic to the secondary node when there is a problem with the primary node.
Cloud Load Balancers have high-availability functionality built in. You only need to buy one load balancer to get high availability at no additional cost.
Uses synthetic transaction monitoring to inspect an HTTP response code and body content to determine if your workload is healthy.
Improves website performance by temporarily storing recently accessed data.
Each Cloud Load Balancer host machine has 20Gbps of highly available network throughput.
The Cloud Load Balancer API is a RESTful web service interface that lets you customize and automate load balancer management.
Simplified task management
Easily perform tasks like creating and removing load balancers, adding servers to a pool, or removing servers from a pool.
Allows seamless access between products and services.
Reduces CPU/memory usage and network congestion by using a single connection to send and receive multiple requests.
Supports SSL termination
Increases the performance of high-volume SSL traffic by allowing SSL termination at the load balancer.
Accelerates interactive performance of API calls and responses by encoding request and response body data.
Supports JSON and XML data serialization
Provides flexibility by supporting multiple data serialization types.
Regionalized load balancers
Improves performance speed by making it simple to localize your load balancer.
