Aplus.Net, a Internet presence and web hosting provider for small to medium-sized businesses (SMB), announced today the availability of Load Balancing Services for optimizing speed across servers and improving server performance. The hardware-based Load Balancing Service is available immediately to dedicated or managed server customers.
Load Balancing is the latest addition to Aplus.NetÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s line of Advanced Business Services for dedicated- and managed server customers. The new services have been implemented to help customers meet their goals, sustain growth and contribute to their overall business success.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œLoad Balancing is the newest addition to our Advanced Business Services line,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Ivan Vachovsky, Chief Executive Officer of Aplus.Net. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œA distributed system of many servers is more reliable and works better than a single super-server. The problem is how you make many servers look and act as one server. The solution is load balancing. We deliver this solution today to our dedicated and managed hosting customers.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
Aplus.NetÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Load Balancer works as a proxy device between two or more servers. It receives information from the Internet prior to it entering a customerÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s server, analyzes it, determines the services scheduling method, and then decides where to send the request. The Load Balancer distributes the information evenly across the servers, preventing server load failures, ensuring constant resource availability, and maximizing overall system performance.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s well known that if a web page takes longer than 8 seconds to load, you will lose your customer and, therefore, revenue,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said John Martis, Executive Vice President of Operations for Aplus.Net. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe offer Load Balancing to our server customers as a solution to this problem.
The new load balancing service is available immediately to all existing and new Aplus.Net customers with dedicated and managed servers. More information on Load Balancing Services is available at http://servers.aplus.net/dedicated_load_balancing.html
