Load Balancers and GlassFish

Guest Author

Balanced Scales

A recent USERS thread asked about
Load Balancers and GlassFish;
from there and with a couple of additions:

• Load Balancer Module Home Page

• Daniel on Balancing with Mod_JK

• Prashanth on BigIP - F5,
a hardware appliance.

• Sreeram and Jason on using Sun Secure Application Switch

• Pankaj on using LB Plugin
(which can be used with SJS Web Server)

More LB Plugin Info from Satish.

We are going to start an FAQ at the GlassFish Wiki for frequent questions like this;
stay tuned.

On a different direction, one of Sailfin's improvements is integrated Load Balancer - see
Milestone 1.

    Hey, will there be a software load balancing solution available at some point? Aren't those über-expensive hardware load balancers kind of historical at this point, since general purpose systems are supposed to be the big thing?

    Mod_JK connects to an apache httpd server front-end; and the LB plugin works with several software solutions, including SJS WS 7. The BigIP-F5 is a hardware solution, but the others are not -- eduard/o

    No, I mean a serious software load balancing solution, which does the things that the hardware load balancers do.
