This book is a guide to the technology that is changing the way e- commerce sites, web infrastructures, and corporate networks are designed and implemented. Load balancing overcomes many of the scaling and flexibility obstacles that e-commerce sites and large corporate networks face today. Server Load Balancing explains the concepts of load balancing and offers consistent terminology and practical guidance for planning and implementing it in most environments. It includes a configuration guide with diagrams and sample configurations for installing, configuring, and maintaining products from four major vendors: Alteon WebSystems, Cisco's CSS Series (formerly ArrowPoint), F5's BIG-IP, and the Foundry ServerIron series. By comparing several load balancing products, Server Load Balancing enables a deeper understanding of the technology. No system administrator responsible for traffic management should be without this practical guide.
