We want to switch from VPS to Cloud Server soon and do the following:
- use just one service/domain with SSL connection;
- have three servers (or instances, I'm not sure how it works in cloud) in three different parts of the world (e.g. Europe, Asia, America);
- user/visitor would use the nearest server to his location (e.g. if he's in New York, he would use server in America etc.);
What do we need to achieve that? I'm new to cloud servers and I'm not sure how load balancers exactly work (because we will need that, right?).
Would this solution use 3 cloud servers and 1 load balancer or just 1 server and 3 balancers?
P.S. I thought about Rackspace.com for this solution.
