Netmagic’s SimpliNet Virtual Load Balancer Appliance is an optional component within Netmagic’s cloud networking solutions suite. Customers can add multiple network layer extensions to their SimpliCompute infrastructure to enhance availability, security, and performance.
Netmagic’s Virtual Load Balancer Appliance (VLB) is a ready-to-deploy Input Gateway that provides a Load Balanced entry point into multiple virtual servers. The Load Balancer is provisioned online via the same provisioning portal that customers use to provision their Virtual Servers and other cloud-related services. The VLB can be contracted only if customer has contracted for Virtual Firewall Appliance (VFA). Protocols supported by the VLB are TCP and UDP.
Is there a limit to the number of VMs I can put behind a VLB?
There is no limit on the number of SimpliCompute Instances (Virtual Servers) that a customer can place behind a VLB. Simply choose the VLB size that matches your requirement and you’re good to go. The Netmagic Service Orchestrator will allow you to manage the Virtual Load Balancer.
