  • Load Balancing as a Service

    • Additional Algorithm Support: Weights Enabled

    Load Balancing as a Service has expanded its Algorithm support to include the ability to apply weights to designated nodes. The concept of weights can be applied to all support Algorithms (URL Hash, Source IP, Least Conn, and Round Robin). The ability to apply weights will help to ensure that nodes designated with a higher weight are then apportioned a greater number of request.

    • Additional Health Check Support: HTTP

    Load Balancing as a Service has expanded support for Health Checks to include HTTP.

    For an HTTP health check probe to be considered successful, the instance must return a valid HTTP 200 or 300 level response. If it does this a specified number of times in a row, the health check returns a status of HEALTHY for that instance.

  • Infrastructure as a Service

    • Hyperscale server provisioning in IL1 and UC1 has been disabled

    The ability to provision Hyperscale servers has been disabled in the UC1 and IL1 locations. Other IaaS server types have not been affected.
