Today, we officially pushed to production our newest supported cloud service: AWS Elastic Load Balancer.
The AWS Elastic Load Balancer, which automatically distributes incoming application traffic to the right set of EC2 instances, plays a vital role maintaining business continuity. Enterprises that often experience sudden surges in traffic, such as in media and marketing, rely on AWS Elastic Load Balancing to ensure greater levels of application fault tolerance.
With ElasticBox, users compose their applications by stacking together Boxes. At the time of deploying to a cloud provider such as AWS, the user can select from a set of provider-specific services that enhance the deployment.
Users now have the option to add AWS Elastic Load Balancer capabilities at the time of deploying their Box. We support the load balancing of applications using HTTP, HTTPS, TCP and SSL protocols and provide the ability to specify the certificates necessary for secure protocols. In addition to creating brand new load balancers at the time of deployment, we also support the reuse of existing load balancers that are associated with the user’s AWS account. This allows businesses to repurpose their existing infrastructure configurations.
With the addition of Elastic Load Balancer, we have expanded our current list of supported AWS services: EC2, RDS (MySQL and Oracle), ElastiCache, and S3 Block Storage.
Our philosophy at ElasticBox is steer away from a common denominator approach to cloud provider support. Whether it is AWS, VMware, GCE, OpenStack or Azure, our focus is to provide rich and in-depth support for the services that differentiate each of these cloud providers.
