Distribute WebServer traffic to multiple servers

Link to this post 17 Jan 13

Hello, I as many others are a WebMaster.

My site is starting to use more traffic than one machine can handle, as well as the DDoS.

Now my question is, how do i distribute traffic as in all requests to multiple servers.

Right now, i have 4 servers available. Im planning on using:

1 Load balancer
2 Static content servers
1 MySQL server.

When i say distribute, I mean so if i receive a DDoS of 1 gbit, they will go to all servers and only get 300-350 mbit each.

Several option are listed in the article at http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/ch9/rr.html .

However it sounds like you should look towards a basic round robin approach.
