What is a Load Balancer?

Load Balancers are highly available and fully managed instances which distribute the workload among your servers. They ensure the scaling of applications while securing their continuous availability. They are commonly used to improve the performance and reliability of websites, applications, databases, and other services by distributing the workload across multiple servers.
It monitors the availability of your backend servers, detects if a server fails and rebalance the load between the rest of the servers, making your applications highly available for users.
A Load Balancer can be used as frontend, both for Scaleway Cloud Instances and for Dedibox Dedicated Servers.
