Intelligently distribute requests to cloud servers in both Brightbox UK datacentres, providing unbeatable redundancy. Using anycast, our cloud load balancers can tolerate the loss of an entire datacentre zone without disruption!
Brightbox cloud load balancers are incredibly fast, handling up to 400,000 concurrent connections and processing 1.4 Gbps of encrypted HTTPS traffic (or 1.8 Gbps of standard HTTP traffic)!
The cloud load balancer service runs continuous health-checks on each of your backend Cloud Servers and automatically removes any unresponsive servers from the pool until they return to full health.
Brightbox Load Balancers can decrypt SSL/TLS traffic at 1.4 Gbps and are compatible with SSL v3, TLS 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2. Automatic Let's Encrypt certificate generation and renewal or bring your own.
Each Load Balancer can balance multiple protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, FTP, Websockets etc) across multiple backend ports simultaneously.
