Author: Leif Nisaan

Load balancing dedicated servers is basically a technique by which the load on one dedicated server is distributed among two dedicated servers. This way the load is not concentrated on one dedicated server which increases the performance of the server. If you compare a load balancing dedicated server with a dedicated server, you will notice that the dedicated server has much more features in comparison to the dedicated server. Some of them are as follows :-

1) Asymmetric load : The performance of the front end servers is improved as the load can be distributed with back end Dedicated servers.

2) Immediate Activation : If due to some reason the front end server is failed, the backend server can be bought online which is very great as the websites will not face any downtime.

3) SSL Load Management : Load balancing hardware can help to manage the load balancing hardware.
