Managed Load Balancing

Utilising the Fortinet FortiGate series of security appliances in High Availability (HA) configuration, we are able to provide load balancing services in the possible configurations:

 

 

  1. Static: The traffic load is spread evenly across all servers. 
  2. Round Robin: Directs request to the next server, and treats all servers as equals regardless of response time or number of connections. Dead servers or non responsive servers are avoided. 
  3. Weighted: Servers with a higher weight value will receive a larger percentage of connections. The server weight is set when adding a server.

 

Load balancing is able to be performed on multiple protocols (ie HTTP, DNS) to maximise uptime and also distribute user sessions via multiple servers within a load balanced cluster.
