Why load balancers

Our redundant load balancers are fully-managed and enable you to distribute incoming traffic to your virtual machines automatically. This makes sure that traffic is distributed evenly and no VM is overstrained, you can modify your work without worrying about the availability or performance of your infrastructure. Like every service gridscale offers, you can configure your load balancer in just a few clicks.

These supporting features help you use gridscale’s load balancer with ease

Use free or custom SSL certificates

You can either get a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate that automatically renews for every Load Balancer or use custom SSL certificates that you already own. Simply configure your existing certificate and private key for the usage with gridscale’s load balancer.

Automatic Maintenance Mode

Flexible rules allow to react to various situations. For example: If you perform maintenance on your web service, the load balancer can automatically redirect all your traffic to a maintenance website.

Include external servers

Most providers deny the inclusion of any 3rd party services. We don’t, so you can . add external servers as load balancing targets. If you would like to add a local or remote server, you can do so by using the gridscale’s panel or RESTful API.

Pay-as-you-go, per minute!

Never lose track of costs - you only pay for what you use and monitor your costs in our real-time usage report. Scale your infrastructure resources at anytime to deliver the best project possible.

Networks

Our networking technology enables gridscale’s infrastructure components to securely communicate with each other, the internet and on-premise networks.
