Load Balancer


A load balancer serves as a single point of contact for clients. To balance load, you must create a load balancer and add at least a listener and backend server to the load balancer.

ELB provides two types of load balancers: classic load balancer and enhanced load balancer. You can select an appropriate type based on application scenarios and service requirements.

For how to create a classic load balancer, see Creating a Classic Load Balancer. For how to create an enhanced load balancer, see Creating an Enhanced Load Balancer.
