Load Balancer

The Load Balancer service provides an extra measure of stability and redundancy for University systems and servers residing behind firewalls in UVM's datacenters.

Clients are provided with their own load balancer partition on a shared F5 BIG-IP load balancer. Clients have the advantage of a professionally administered and maintained load balancer service without the overhead and expense of doing it themselves.
