Join Brandon Rich for an in-depth discussion in this video Add an OpsWorks load balancer, part of Amazon Web Services: Deploying and Provisioning.
- [Instructor] Now that we have…our application up and running…with an RDS database,…it's time to turn our attention…to scaling the web tier.…Right now in our rails application server layer,…we only have one instance.…If we want to add more,…we're going to need to introduce an elastic load balancer.…Let's click into this rails app server layer.…If you recall, under the network tab,…there's this option to add an elastic load balancer.…If I do this,…I'll get some selections of some ELBs…that I've already created,…but those are all already in use for other things.…I need to create one from scratch.…
So now, to do that,…I will exit the Opswork section of AWS…and head on over to the EC2 area.…I've been to EC2 recently,…so here it is under recently viewed services.…Load balancing is along the side, on the left-hand menu.…Click the create load balancer button…and we'll get started.…There are two flavors of load balancers in AWS.…We want the classic load balancer.…Click continue.…We're now inside the elastic load balancer creation wizard.…
