We have been using zvncloud (www.zvncloud.com) sevices from the begining and it works like a charm, they have created a LBaaS Infraestructure with Zen Load Balancer www.zenloadbalancer.com.

It supports: Load Balancing in L4 for any potocol TCP or UDP Content switching for HTTP protocols SSL offloading Reverse proxy supported. etc

We have been making some stress test and we have reached 80.000 concurrent connections, awesome, isn’t it?

You could use pikacloud.com to set up load balancing between your droplets.

ditto. What’s Digital Ocean’s recommended solution for load balancing?

Hi, <br> <br>We are about to launch a website for which we expect a lot of traffic and we are also interested by load balancing. <br> <br>The main problem with setting up a load balancer droplet as suggested, is that you will only benefit from the bandwidth of this specific droplet and “lose” the bandwidth of all other droplets. <br> <br>Have you any ETA for load balancing and/or pooled bandwidth ? <br>The lack of such functionnalities let us consider switching to Linode despite the higher price… <br> <br>Thanks

Unfortunately we do not offer load balancers. However, this feature is on the roadmap – see <a href=“https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/2670745-load-balancer”>https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/2670745-load-balancer</a>. <br> <br>Meanwhile, you can set up load balancing yourself. We have a few articles on load balancing: <br>- <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-haproxy-to-set-up-http-load-balancing-on-an-ubuntu-vps”>HTTP load balancing using HAProxy</a>. <br>- <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-nginx-load-balancing”>HTTP load balancing using nginx</a>. <br>- <a href=“https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-use-haproxy-to-set-up-mysql-load-balancing--3”>MySQL load balancing using HAProxy</a>.

Yes! As of today, DigitalOcean offers a Load Balancing service. You can learn more here.

If you having problems you can split the data between 2 droplets.
