Load-balancing Load-balanced Load-balancers

50 minute beginner seminar

Description/Proposal

Ever wanted to A/B test your site with SSL, sticky cookie based sessions and custom ratios on AWS? I have and it was almost impossible to do out of the box using just the services available on AWS.

I'm going to show you the simplest way to build yourself an amazingly redundant and resilient solution that will allow you to effectively load -balance multiple instances of HAProxy that are configured to give you a level of control over your routing AWS just can't do.

You will be able to walk away from this talk confident that you can implement your own implementation and if not I have some CloudFormation templates that you can use to get you going.
