High demand data could be at risk without reliable load balancing solutions

virtual and managed hosting londonA wide range of managed services provided by Metropolitan Networks for businesses of all sizes and nature have made it possible for organisations to adapt and function smoothly with the help of the technical advancements. We specialize in various IT based services that includes VoIP, IT network design and managed services that includes managed load balancing, managed hosting, and more.

With internet traffic being heavier than it has ever been and higher user expectations for consistent and lightning-fast connections, Load Balancing has become more important than ever. With Managed Load Balancing, we can design, install and manage a system to best fit the needs of your business.

How Load Balancing works: A network of hardware load balancers will receive and sort incoming traffic, which will allow your data load to be shared between all of your servers. And should a server fail, the system will re-direct traffic from the failed server, so that your connection is never interrupted, facilitating constant availability.

Our trained and certified engineers will not only manage and maintain the load balancing service, but provide around-the-clock support. Should your system require emergency repairs or need attention in some way, we will ensure that every need is met.

Metropolitan Networks’ Managed Load Balancing Service increases:

  • Availability – Load Balancing hardware is given regular ‘health checks’ and taken offline for repairs if there are any issues.
  • Scalability – demand can be easily matched with automatically adding or removing servers from the server farm.
  • On-line Capacity – more users can connect as traffic is shared equally between servers. As a result, more FTP, HTTP and SSL services can be provided.
