In this new how-to guide from Ricardo Gutierrez Cabanillas, you will learn to configure the IBM Security Access Manager for Web 8.0 appliance as a front-end load balancer and cluster of reverse proxy servers to build a highly available, fault-tolerant, secure web environment.
The front-end load balancing function automatically assigns client requests to the appropriate reverse proxy server based on the specified scheduling algorithm. Moreover, the front-end load balancer provides stickiness or persistence for existing sessions, allowing incoming requests from the same client to be forwarded to the same server. A typical setup is two front-end load balancer servers and multiple reverse proxy servers.
