What is Amazon Elastic Load Balancing?

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. It can handle the varying load of your application traffic in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. Elastic Load Balancing offers three types of load balancers that all feature the high availability, automatic scaling, and robust security necessary to make your applications fault tolerant.

Highly configurable, good performance, and easy setup
Pros and Cons
  • "It has very good features. It is very configurable. Security with TLS, et cetera is also very easy."
  • "One issue that we faced with ALB was that leaf-level certificate validation was not happening. It is not that user-friendly in that aspect."

What is our primary use case?

Application Load Balancer is required for redirecting two or more instances. We have got two EKS instances running. So, we have to connect in a round-robin fashion based on when a request needs to be sent to one EKS and when it needs to be sent to another EKS. For this purpose, we use Application Load Balancer.

What is most valuable?

It has very good features. It is very configurable. Security with TLS, et cetera is also very easy.  It is good performance-wise, and the logging mechanism is also very good because we get the VPC log whenever a request comes. So, we can easily find out where the request is coming from.

What needs improvement?

One issue that we faced with ALB was that leaf-level certificate validation was not happening. It is not that user-friendly in that aspect. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. I would rate it an eight out of ten in terms of stability.
