Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Focusing resources with HTTP load balancing, part of Google Cloud Compute Engine Essential Training.
- In the previous lesson,…we set up a network load balancing resource…through a combination of forwarding rules,…target pools, and health checks.…HTTP load balancing also works…with forwarding rules, target pools,…and health checks,…but the primary difference…is that HTTP load balancing…offers global access to your virtual machines,…rather than regional.…Moreover, HTTP load balancing is content aware.…You can shift to specific servers…for specific types of content,…such as images, data bases, or streaming media.…
There are limitations, however.…HTTP load balancing is restricted…to ports 80 and 8080.…For any HTTPS requests,…you'd need to use network load balancing.…All right!…With that clarified,…let's step through the process…of establishing an HTTP load balancer.…So, I'm going to start again…from my project page on the console,…and I want to go down to Compute, Compute Engine,…and then to HTTP, Load Balancing.…
We don't have one defined yet,…so let's go ahead and create one.…I'll click that lovely blue button…and I'm going to go ahead and give it a name.…
