In this video, Scott configures a cluster of web servers to demonstrate North-South load balancing with the use of the Network Controller role in Server 2016.
- [Instructor] When we closed out chapter four,…we were looking at the need for load balancing.…Specifically, we looked at the need to distribute…port 80 or 443, your basic website requests,…to two identical web servers.…In this video, we're going to talk a little bit…about load balancing and how it's done…in the Software Defined Networking components…of Windows Server 2016.…Remember the design of software defined networks.…We have the physical network of cables and switches…and host machines and virtual machines.…
And above that, or north of that,…we have the network controller.…And north of the network controller…are the various network defining applications.…So communication up and dow the model is north to south,…which means communication between servers…within the data center is considered east to west.…So north/south load balancing is distributing the traffic…that comes in from outside our network…to the various physical devices and virtual servers within.…
This is done using a Windows Server feature…that runs on Software Defined…
