A Pikacloud load balancer distributes incoming web application requests accross multiple servers you own. It allows you to create fault tolerant and horizontal scaling web applications.
Pikacloud offers advanced load balancing for the application layer (OSI layer 7). You can load balance HTTP and HTTPS traffic with SSL offloading and HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) support, websocket support included.
Load balancers are associated with domain names. One load balancer can distribute traffic for multiple websites and servers.
HTTP requests and responses can be modified with a set of rules like Host header rewriting or URL rewriting.
