Load balancing making use of IIS7 demand transmitting and also load balancing component
Microsoft has a great deal of documents concerning their rather new load balancing and also demand transmitting component for IIS7 situated below: http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2009/02/16/iis7-request-routing-and-load-balancing-module-released.aspx, yet I would certainly such as to recognize if any person has experience utilizing it in manufacturing. What are a couple of pros/ disadvantages to utilizing this component as opposed to an additional remedy such as HAProxy?
We are utilizing it in manufacturing for a firm details internet site. And also we havnt had any kind of trouble in all with it yet. And also it functions smooth to remove web servers and also loadbalancing additionally function wonderful. Making use of the very least reponsetime so among the web server is obtaining some even more demands. We are mosting likely to relocate among our ecommerce shops additionally that have alot extra trafic after that the firm details website. So we will certainly see just how it functions under even more hefty load. Yet our examinations have actually revealed that it needs to manage it without troubles
I considered this very same point recently. Ultimately I determined the IIS7 technology was still sort of environment-friendly. Load balancing/routing is actually the sort of technology you desire somebody else to locate the creases in : -). Have had an excellent experience with HAProxy and also if your demands are less complex, nginx is very easy to set up.
