Azion Introduces Layer 7 Load Balancer

Azion Introduces Layer 7 Load Balancer

A load balancer is similar to a reverse proxy. That means it acts as a proxy for the server in client-server connections, as opposed to a forward proxy, which would act as a proxy for the client. When a client device attempts to connect to a service, a load balancer for that service accepts the connection, and then decides which of its servers to forward the connection to, based on the rules of the load balancing algorithm it was programmed with (more on that in a moment).
