Scaling and Load Balancing

Top  Previous  Next


Scaling and load balancing come into play when one machine is not capable of managing all the required resources. Too many concurrent connections may cause an overload.

Load balancing and fault tolerance are methodologies designed to distribute workload across multiple services to achieve optimal resource utilization, avoid overload and allow the system to operate properly in the event of failure of any of its components.


z/Scope Anywhere provides components that allow you to distribute the workload across multiple servers. You can scale the application availability in terms of server instances and failover scenarios.


Some of the benefits of load balancing:


Avoids the overload by distributing the connections among different servers
Minimizes response time
More reliability (redundancy)
Fail over control


This help section is intended to show you how to create a network configuration using the load balancing capabilities included in z/Scope Anywhere.
