Load Balancer

Improve the performance of your services as you grow.

Increased availability

Load Balancer is the easiest way to build a resilient platform thanks to a highly available architecture. All backend servers are monitored to ensure that traffic is distributed among healthy resources.

Peak load management

Avoid dips in performance by adding as many backend servers as necessary. Increase your processing capacity in a few clicks from the Scaleway console or configure automatic scaling using the API.

Scale your business

As your business grows, you need more resources to succeed. With Load Balancer, you can easily scale your business by adding new backend servers to improve your quality of service without any downtime.

Load Balancer use cases

Handle peaks in e-commerce activity

Distribute workloads across multiple servers during peaks in traffic to your website using Load Balancer to ensure continued availability and avoid servers being overloaded.

Key features

Health checks

Whether you are distributing your workload between web servers, databases, or other TCP services, you can easily set up health checks to ensure the availability of your backend servers. You can even monitor their availability in real time. If one of them fails to respond, its traffic is automatically redirected until the problem is solved.

Balancing rules/Proxy

Use our Load Balancer to regulate traffic according to your use cases. Round-robin, sticky connections, least connection or first healthy rules are good examples of what is possible.

Unlimited backends

Add as many backend servers as you want to our Load Balancer and scale your infrastructure on the fly, without any limits, and distribute your traffic across multiple platforms with the multi-cloud offer or inside a VPC on a Private Network.

ACLs permissions

Filter the IP addresses that are allowed to request your servers. Disable unwanted visitors to keep them from connecting to your network bandwidth, thus increasing security.

Multi-cloud connections

Some offers allow you to distribute your traffic between different platforms or any on-premise server or Instance. This allows you to build a more robust infrastructure and avoids depending on a single platform.


Use our Load Balancer to expose your containers and pods to the internet, so they have a common DNS and IP address, and to balance workloads.

Bandwidth of up to 4Gbit/s

With a sizable bandwidth offer, there’s no use case we don’t support. And, as we do not charge for egress, you will be billed a fixed price with no surprises.

Adapt the protocol

You can configure your Load Balancer’s backend, and choose the protocol (HTTP, HTTPs, HTTP/2, HTTP/3 or TCP) used to send and receive data.

Traffic encryption

Improve network speed by passing SSL/TLS-encrypted data through your Load Balancer without decrypting it, accelerating backend request processing as well as communication between servers and end users.

You can also use Load Balancer as a bridge to decrypt incoming encrypted traffic at the frontend and re-encrypt traffic before forwarding it to backend servers, thus ensuring total end-to-end security.
