  1. Setting up Amazon Elastic Load Balancer (1 messages)

    Amazon ELB is a very convenient and easy to setup as a component in the Enterprise Web Applications to balance the incoming web request load to available pool of instances. In addition to this, Amazon ELB also detects the health of instances in the pool and can change the traffic pattern of requests to route them to only healthy instances.ELB also has facility to enable stickiness in the sessions so that request from the same client is load balanced by the same instance in the pool. An additional use of ELB is to map requests from port HTTP 80 to HTTP port 8080 of the application servers or web servers running on the EC2 instance. More on this can be found here -
