Rapid spikes in online traffic can challenge even the best web sites and applications. During online sales events, even a brief outage can cost you thousands of customers.
Cloud Load Balancers manage online traffic by distributing workloads across multiple servers and resources—automatically or on demand. They maximize your workload performance and help prevent overload to help give your users a seamless experience.
High availability without a long-term contract
Each load balancer is assigned an IP address that remains static while the load balancer is in use.
Offloads public key encryption and decryption, and provides HTTP to HTTPS redirect to help secure transactions.
"We are able to focus on what we do best and let Rackspace take care of the infrastructure, because the team at Rackspace has a deeper understanding of the Windows Server OS than any other hosting company I’ve seen."
