Is there a load balancer that’s deployed in front of Pagely’s web servers?

Yes, our High Availability plans run two fully-functional web servers where application data is sync’d, while the database resides on an elastic Aurora RDS database cluster. It health checks each node, housed in two different AWS Availability Zones, via CNAME DNS. One node will always be primary, traffic is not split between the two in a “typical” load balanced fashion. In the event of a spike, our caching nodes are designed to weather the brunt of your traffic.

If you’re looking for multiple web nodes to scale horizontally beyond our standard plan packages, we can always build a custom cluster environment for you. Depending on your needs, some customers benefit more by scaling vertically (increasing the CPU/Memory capacity of a single node plan) to better prepare for traffic waves.

We’re always happy to chat about your situation further and help determine which route is most suited for your requirements should you have any questions. Please contact sales to discuss more.
