Most of big websites use more than one server for hosting their content. One of the most important challenges in such cases is to distribute load intelligently between servers.
Particularly in circumstances that these servers are placed in more than one point (datacenter), a multiple‑point load distribution is needed (Multi-Site Load Balancing.)
ArvanCloud intelligently distributes the traffic load at the first layer (User’s connection to ArvanCloud’s edge servers) but it also can distribute the edge server requests to ArvanCloud’s main servers (content hosting).
If you use more than one server or datacenter for your web hosting, you can save your structure to reduce the error factor when immigrating to ArvanCloud.
You can also define more than one server group and in each group, define an arbitrary number of different servers with different weights and manage them.
Also, the number of errors for decommissioning a server can be specified in order to redirect immediately and provide service from other available servers.
Load distribution is adjustable; intermittent load distribution, load distribution based on client address, load distribution based on minimum connections to one server, and load distribution based on geographical location.
For example, in the case of geographical load balancing, you can adjust it so that for getting the content, all the edge servers in your country connect to a specific server, and all the edge servers outside the country will connect to another; and in case any of these sources turns unavailable, it will be immediately replaced with another.
