DigitalOcean Releases Load Balancers
February 23, 2017

DigitalOcean released Load Balancers, a highly available product that enables developers and small businesses to distribute traffic across their infrastructure to achieve 100% uptime for their production workloads.

"We're quickly expanding the capabilities of our cloud to support larger scale-out applications," said Julia Austin, CTO of DigitalOcean. "With Load Balancers, we are providing developers and businesses with a simple service for maximizing the availability and reliability of applications without disrupting the end user experience. Load Balancers is the first major new product DigitalOcean has released this year. Over the coming year, you'll see us continue to release a number of important products and features to meet our customers' high availability, data storage, security, and networking needs."

Load Balancers on DigitalOcean can be created effortlessly from the control panel or API — no additional installation or configuration needed. Using Load Balancers to distribute connections enables developers and small businesses to scale their applications horizontally by sending traffic only to healthy Droplets, ensuring no single point of failure and increasing availability across their infrastructure.

With Load Balancers, developers have access to the following:

- Support for multiple protocols including HTTP, HTTPS, and TCP

- Managed TLS certificates

- Full access through DigitalOcean's API
