LANSING, Mich., May 27. Cloud Computing provider, Storm On Demand, added network load balancing for both Storm Servers and Bare Metal Dedicated Servers. This allows users to create powerful high availability networks which utilize a hybrid of flexible Cloud Servers and powerful Dedicated Servers with the same management tools. For a limited time, Storm Load Balancers are Free -- Offer expires September 1st, 2010.

  Storm Cloud Load Balancing Highlights:
  --  Load balance traffic across Cloud Server & Storm Bare Metal Dedicated
      Servers
  --  Load Balancer SSL Termination & Session Persistence for proper source
      logging & security handling.
  --  Redundant fault tolerant enterprise class Load Balancer Hardware with
      Multiple Gigabits of Connectivity
  --  Multiple Load Balancing Methods including: Round Robin, Least Connect
      and Historical Intelligence
Storm users can easily deploy one or many Virtual IP addresses to load balance traffic across an unlimited number of nodes utilizing Round Robin, Least Connect or Historical Intelligence load balancing methods. Storm users may load balance Web Services (HTTP/HTTPS), DNS, FTP or specify a custom port. The Storm On Demand load balancer includes the option to enable SSL Persistence or Load Balancer SSL Termination.

Network load balancing intelligently distributes traffic across multiple nodes and is a critical component of any high availability server configuration. Load balancers can greatly increase the speed & reliability of your web application because if one of your server nodes fails or becomes overloaded the traffic is automatically shifted to another server node without any interruption of service. Another advantage of load balancing is that nodes may be selectively added and removed from the load balancing pool allowing for easy server maintenance without disruption of service.
