Amazon Elastic Load Balancing Overview

What is Amazon Elastic Load Balancing?

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. It can handle the varying load of your application traffic in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. Elastic Load Balancing offers three types of load balancers that all feature the high availability, automatic scaling, and robust security necessary to make your applications fault tolerant.

Easy to implement and integrates well with Amazon's solutions, but reporting would be a helpful feature

What is our primary use case?

We have a lot of customers who are currently not on Amazon; they are running on-premise data centers. When they ask us to migrate, we migrate their applications to Amazon. Load Balancing is often a component we use. We use HTTPS port 443, and we integrate the load balancer with the applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very well integrated into Amazon's services."
  • "It would be good if we had a product that integrates well with third-party vendors. Some of our customers want a multi-cloud solution. They don't want to be tied up to or be in just one cloud."

What other advice do I have?

We have not used the network load balancer so far in Amazon. We have only used the application load balancer. As far as an application load balancer is concerned, it doesn't require any additional features.
