Elastic Load Balancing – in AWS

What is Elastic Load Balancing?

  • Elastic Load Balancer (ELB), is a device that helps to distribute the load to multiple servers as per the requirement.
  • ELB automatically distributes incoming application traffic over multiple Amazon EC2 instances. This results in increased capacity and greater reliability of the applications running behind the LB.
  • ELB provides high availability, fault tolerance by removing the non-healthy EC2 instances from the pool and ensures that the traffic is routed only to the healthy instances.
