Let your servers share the load.

Distribute traffic loads so that no single device gets overwhelmed. SoftLayer load balancing solutions allow configurability and flexibility to manage the traffic and resource usage of server nodes in your environment.

Local, global, and high availability options can be activated, changed, and deactivated at any time. And if you have questions about which load balancing solution is a best fit for your application, our experts have answers.



Better Uptime

Mitigate traffic spikes by distributing load, and protect your servers from unnecessary downtime.

More Responsive

Balance traffic between available resources so end users do not face traffic jams and slow downs.

Easy to Use

Manage load balancer configuration and performance directly through SoftLayer API and Web portal.

Local Load Balancing

SoftLayer Local Load Balancing utilizes industry-standard techniques including round-robin, lowest latency, least connections, shortest response, and IP persistence to balance traffic among two or more servers. It can be activated and configured in real-time, with servers added to or removed from the balancing pool on-demand with little or no downtime.
