Load Balancer

서버의 성능과 부하량을 고려해 네트워크 트래픽을 다수의 서버로 분산시켜 줍니다

24/7 Non-stop, Stable Service

A load balancer distributes network traffic to multiple servers to relieve loads on servers. When one of the servers connected to the load balancer fails, the load on the server is automatically distributed to other servers, to ensure a highly stable service.

High Availability
If one of the servers connected to the load balancer fails, the load on the server is automatically distributed to the other servers for uninterrupted service. In addition, a server connected to one load balancer can be multi-connected to another load balancer.
Easy Setting
On the web-based console, you can create and manage the settings of load balancers easily. The monitoring features are also supported. A RESTful API for developers can be used for easy setup.
Encryption-based Security
Supports encrypted communication, such as TLS v1.0, TLS v1.1, TLS v1.2 to respond to security problems that may arise during the course of your network. In addition, the SSL offloading function enables decryption processing to be performed during encryption communication processed by the server. If you set up an SSL certificate on the load balancer while setting up HTTPS/SSL, you do not need to set up SSL certificates on the individual servers that are connected.
Ways to Distribute Server Load
The server load distribution methods are Round Robin, Least Connection, and Source IP Hash.
· Round Robin: Delivers requests equally and sequentially to specified servers
· Least Connection: Assigns requests to a server with the fewest number of connections
· Source IP Hash: Carries out load balancing, with the result hashed on client’s source IP information

Provides Various Server Load Distribution Algorithms as Well as
Convenient Management Features for Stable Service

SSL Authentication and Encryption Settings

You can add an SSL certificate on the web-based console. You can select one version from SSL protocols, such as TLS v1, TLS v1.1, and TLS v1.2 and set the applied SSL ciphers. The load balancer allows the selected ciphers for connection during SSL connection.

Load Balancer Access Control Group (AGC) Settings

To establish communication between a load balancer and a server, the ACG rule that allows communication with the load balancer must be set. If the ACG rule is not set, successful communication is not possible even if load balancer Setup has been completed.

Load Balancer Port Settings

You can set several load balancer rules at a time. When setting a load balancer rule, you must set the load balancer port to be different from load balancer ports with other load balancer rules. The server port can be identical to the server port of other load balancer rules.

Load Balancer Monitoring

Basic monitoring information is provided for the load balancer. Like server monitoring, the monitoring information collection interval is 1min, 5mins, 2hrs, or 1 day. Load balancer monitoring provides three types of information: Concurrent Connections, Connections Per Second, and Traffic.

Load Balancer Management

After creating a load balancer, you can change the settings of Connection Idle Timeout or Keep-Alive. Connection Idle Timeout indicates the period to maintain the connection with the load balancer. Generally, the connection is forcibly disconnected after the period expires. If you need an application that supports long transactions, adjust the Connection Idle Timeout options to set the connection period. Additionally, when requesting a connection again while maintaining a connection for a certain period, you can reuse the existing connection with the HTTP Keep-Alive option.

Ways to Distribute Server Load

The supported server load distribution methods are: Round Robin, Least Connection, and Source IP Hash.

Server Load Distribution Type Table
Distribution TypesContent
Round RobinDelivers requests fairly and sequentially to servers specified for load balancing.
Regardless of the number of connections to the server or the response time from the server, processing is done for all servers included in the server, providing the fastest request processing speed when compared to a general configuration.
Least ConnectionAssigns the client's request to a server with the fewest number of connections.
Allows the most efficient traffic distribution when there are multiple servers and the performance of all servers are similar to each other.
Source IP HashLoad balancing is performed using the results of hashing based on the client's source IP information.
The use of the source IP hash algorithm is recommended when the SSL protocol is used.

Pricing Information

The Load Balancer fee includes a base rate for each load balancer and a rate based on the amount of network traffic required to process data.

Basic fee

A basic fee is charged per load balancer.

Basic Price List
ClassificationHourly Fee
Load Balancer (per unit)26 KRW

If one load balancer is used for one month (30 days), the basic fee is 18,720 won for the month.

Load balancer network fee

Traffic handled by the load balancer is added to the network traffic which occurred in the other services (Server, File Storage, etc.) and charged together monthly.

The network fee is charged only for outbound traffic.

If the usage hours for the month are 240hrs and the traffic sent (outbound) via the domestic Internet is 10TB, the monthly fee is
(240hrs x 26 KRW) + (5,100GB x 100 KRW) + (5,120GB x 90 KRW) = 6,240 KRW + 970,800 KRW = 977,040 KRW.
