Today's distributed systems can consist of hundreds or even thousands of servers, and getting them to work together efficiently is a challenge. Load balancing is a multifaceted concept whose many techniques can help SREs face this challenge. In this course, you'll explore how front-end load balancing works and its associated techniques, concepts, and capabilities. You'll examine the characteristics of load balancers, their use in application delivery and security, and the use of DNS load balancers. You'll outline strategies for virtual IP load balancing, cloud load balancing, and handling overload. Finally, you'll learn how the Google Front End Service, Andromeda virtualization stack, Maglev network load balancing service, and the Envoy edge and service proxy are used for load balancing-related tasks.
