The beta phase for Dedicated Elastic Load Balancer service in Germany has been completed and is now available for productive use. The service is now covered by an SLA and usage is chargeable.
Each Elastic Load Balancer has its advantages for different requirements.
- Shared load balancer is suitable for web services with high traffic. This type of load balancer is capable of forwarding requests based on domain names or URLs, to meet the needs more flexibly. Resources are shared among load balancers, and the performance of a load balancer is affected by other load balancers.
- Dedicated load balancer allows exclusive use of resources so that the performance of a dedicated load balancer is not affected by other load balancers. There is also a wide range of specifications to choose from. Dedicated load balancers provide more powerful forwarding performance and support cross-AZ (availability zone) deployment.
