Fastly Introduces Load Balancer to Enable Secure and Scalable Online Experiences

Fastly announced its Load Balancer as one of three newly-launched services on Fastly's edge cloud platform. The platform empowers the most popular online brands to deliver secure, fast and personalized digital experiences. Fastly's cloud-based Load Balancer offers businesses advantages over traditional solutions such as DNS and appliance-based load balancers, providing content-aware traffic rules, instant scalability, and instant convergence. Gartner predicts that more than $1 trillion in IT spending will shift from traditional IT solutions to cloud services by 2020. Fastly's Layer 7 Load Balancer is infrastructure agnostic and can efficiently manage traffic across multiple infrastructure-as-a-service providers, data centers, and hybrid-clouds. Companies can instantly auto-scale applications without modifying existing infrastructure, and immediate, granular controls enable precise traffic routing decisions based on a wide range of criteria, including geographic location, language, cookies, device type, or HTTP headers. Key features of the Fastly Load Balancer include: Content-Aware Routing: Customers can intelligently route traffic based on various request aspects such as client location, device type, cookies, URL path, and HTTP headers. Traffic Visibility: Online businesses gain instant visibility into traffic patterns via real-time log streaming. Intelligent Algorithms: Companies can better manage server load with intelligent distribution algorithms including random, round robin, weighted round robin, and hash for sticky sessions. Instant Convergence: Fastly ensures near-instant origin convergence and failover for immediate and granular control, while eliminating additional network hops or points of failure.
