|Server - Interview Questions and Answers for 'Load balancing vs failover' - 1 question(s) found - Order By Newest|
|Ans. Load Balancing is a provision to improve performance by reducing load on a single machine / server. Traffic or load is distributed among different machines and hence resulting in better performance / response time by leveraging more resources.|
Failover is a provision to achieve better availability by switching to a backup server in case of failure.
Load Balancing aims as improving performance whereas failover aims at improving availability.
We can achieve both together by using a Load Balancing system which will isolate an instance in case of it's failure.
