How should I complete my load balancing solution ?
Posted on 2007-10-02
I got 2 servers running IIS 5 under Windows 2000 Server. Everything is working fine. But I'd like in the future to add a load balancing service.
I've found a couple of documentation on the subject so far. But I was wondering how others are doing it with a website using ASP and ASP.NET, in order to keep the session active on the same server all the time ?
from what I've found so far, I would be better with Windows 2003 and IIS6. Do I need anything else other than that to complete my load balancing ? Should I plan anything else ? Or is there any other solution that would be better than Windows 2003 ? Maybe a hardware load balancing, I saw one based on a linux distribution that does that. All I would need is another machine that can handle the web traffic. basically it would do a proxy of some sort.
