Storm® Load Balancers carry a monthly, flat fee of $50. This fee includes one Virtual IP (VIP) with unlimited backend nodes, as well as SSL termination if requested.
Network load balancing intelligently distributes traffic across multiple nodes and is a critical component of any high availability server configuration. Load balancers can greatly increase the speed & reliability of your web application because if one of your server nodes fails or becomes overloaded the traffic is automatically shifted to another server node without any interruption of service. Another advantage of load balancing is that nodes may be selectively added and removed from the load balancing pool allowing for easy server maintenance without disruption service.
Storm® users can easily deploy one or many Virtual IP addresses to load balance traffic across an unlimited number of nodes utilizing Round Robin, Least Connect or Historical Intelligence load balancing methods. Storm® users may load balance Web Services (HTTP/HTTPS), DNS, FTP or specify a custom port. The Storm On Demand® load balancer includes the option to enable SSL Persistence or Load Balancer SSL Termination.
