Subject Re: [users@httpd] Software Load Balancers | mod_proxy_balancer and Varnish
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2012 09:35:55 GMT
Thank you for your response.

I am not looking for caching/site acceleration capabilities. I am looking
at pure load balancing capabilities only.

Are there any know pros/cons or limitations of mod_proxy_balancer and
varnish load balancing? Capabilities that the load balancer that I am
looking for are:

1. Must be able to sustain and be performant in high load and volume
conditions
2. Should support session stickyness and possibly failover from on node to
another without the client requiring to submit the request again
3. Easy to deploy and configure. Possibly - ability to add and remove nodes
from the load balanced farm on the fly

Kind Regards

Anurag Kapur
