Network pain affects every IT manager.

  • Network hardware like load balancers are expensive.
  • Network design is complex, especially sprawling enterprise networks and multi-tenant ISP networks.
  • Expertise is required to keep them running.

The next piece of virtual networking technology for me to deal with is a load balancer. Here, I talk about load balancing in general, and later I will use the AWS console to add a virtual load balancer to my new pair of Drupal instances.
