Flexible Load Balancing

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Flexible Load Balancing enables customers to distribute web requests across a fleet of servers or automatically route traffic across fault domains, availability domains, or regions—yielding high availability and fault tolerance for any application or data source. The portfolio comprises two services—Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Flexible Load Balancer (OCI Load Balancer) and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Flexible Network Load Balancer (OCI Network Load Balancer).

OCI Flexible Load Balancer primarily manages HTTP/HTTPS traffic and provides advanced routing features that distribute the requests based on the requests’ contents. In contrast, OCI Flexible Network Load Balancer performs at low latency, offering extreme performance.
