High Availability, High Performance Load Balancing

Does your Web site or application require maximum uptime and reliability?

Load Balancing

ZZ Servers load balancing services are designed to provide you with a redundant, solid, cost-effective platform that will prevent downtime and lost business opportunities for e-commerce and high-traffic Web sites. Get the performance and peace of mind that will allow you to focus on your core business.

Load balancing allows a group of servers to manage requests made to a server intelligently. This high-performance, high-availability architecture allows significantly greater performance and redundancy than can be achieved by a single server.

Using ZZ Servers load balancing solutions, you protect your systems with additional layers of hardware and network redundancy. We can combine a variety of hardware and software in both dedicated and shared configurations, providing affordable answers to your high-availability needs.

Our dedicated load-balancing/failover solutions are designed to handle high-volume sites with ease, spreading traffic across multiple servers and automatically rerouting the entire load should a particular server fail. This high-availability solution ensures you stay online and prevents any service interruptions.

With ZZ Servers custom load balancing system, even small businesses on a limited budget can afford load balancing and application failover. For a small investment, your critical applications stay up 24/7 and can be balanced across multiple servers and/or sites.

Note: Up to 5 configuration change requests per month included free. Requests for modifications or addition of policy rules beyond the 5 included changes are subject to administrative charges at our standard contract rate.
