Load balancing is an important technique for scaling web applications and ensuring their reliability and availability. In a microservices architecture, a common pattern is to use an API gateway to route incoming requests to the appropriate service instances. However, as the traffic grows, a single API gateway instance may become a bottleneck and a single point of failure. To avoid these issues, we can use multiple API gateway instances and distribute the traffic among them using a load balancer.
In this post, we’ll explore how to set up a load-balanced API gateway using Node.js and Docker. We’ll use Docker Compose to define multiple instances of the API gateway and a load balancer, and we’ll configure the load balancer to distribute the traffic among the instances using a round-robin algorithm.
FreeRADIUS is a popular open-source RADIUS server that provides centralized AAA (authentication, authorization and accounting) services for network access. It can handle a large number of concurrent sessions and can be used for various purposes, including wireless network authentication and VPN access.
Load balancing is a crucial aspect of any network infrastructure, and it is even more critical when it comes to authentication and authorization systems like FreeRADIUS, where unavailability can result in the inability to connect to key networks or systems. Load balancing helps distribute the workload across multiple servers, improving performance and ensuring high availability.
Creating a high availability (HA) RADIUS cluster in the cloud is a complex but crucial step for ensuring that your network authentication and authorization services are always available to your customers. In this blog post, I will discuss the right way to create a HA RADIUS cluster in the cloud.
Simplify Your Software Development: A Smart Approach to Building Flexible Ecosystems that Prioritize Customer Experience.
Traditionally all the approaches come at a significant investment of time, money and skill, and are always focused on reducing complexity, often at the cost of customer experience and flexibility. At the same time, internal as well as external change is constant and inevitable within every organisation. So how do you build software ecosystems that remain core to what the business needs and at the same time add value for the customers when everything is constantly changing? You do it the smart way, integration via abstraction.
