Using the Internet as Your Load-Balancer

Friday, December 09, 2022 - 2:20 pm2:50 pm AEDT

Martin Barry


Load-balancing happens at many layers in the infrastructure of the services we all use and work on. Your edge team or CDN needs to think about load-balancing on a global, internet-wide scale. This talk will help you understand how traffic is balanced on to active/active infrastructure using DNS and BGP routing.
