AWS Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling

  1. Application Load Balancer - Application Load Balancer is best suited for load balancing of HTTP and HTTPS traffic and provides advanced request routing. Application Load Balancer routes traffic to targets within Amazon VPC based on the content of the request.
  2. Network Load Balancer - Network Load Balancer is best suited for load balancing of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), User Datagram Protocol (UDP), and Transport Layer Security (TLS) traffic where extreme performance is required. Network Load Balancer routes traffic to targets within Amazon VPC and is capable of handling millions of requests per second while maintaining ultra-low latencies.
  3. Gateway Load Balancer - Gateway Load Balancer makes it easy to deploy, scale, and run third-party virtual networking appliances. Providing load balancing and auto-scaling for fleets of third-party appliances, Gateway Load Balancer is transparent to the source and destination of the traffic. This capability makes it well suited for working with third-party appliances for security, network analytics, and other use cases.
  4. Classic Load Balancer - Classic Load Balancer provides basic load balancing across multiple Amazon EC2 instances and operates at both the request and connection levels. Classic Load Balancer is intended for applications that were built within the EC2-Classic network.
