In an active-active cluster, two or more instances of HAProxy Enterprise receives traffic in a load-balanced rotation. This allows you to scale out your load-balancing capacity. There are several ways to achieve this setup. We cover the following methods:
- Layer 4 Load Balancing
Configure an active-active cluster of load balancers by using a second tier of load balancers.
- DNS Round-robin
Use DNS round-robin to distribute traffic to an active-active cluster of load balancers.
- Route Health Injection
Use RHI to control routing protocol announcement based on the health of the network in an active-active cluster.
- Real-time Cluster-wide Tracking
Track client behavior across a cluster of active-active HAProxy Enterprise load balancers.
- Load Shedding with NS1
Use NS1 Load Shedding to direct traffic to the geographically closest load balancer.
