We are excited to share that Vultr Load Balancers are available starting today. Available in all 16 datacenter regions, adding high availability and scaling your applications worldwide just got easier with Vultr Load Balancers! Using our fully configured solution, you can simplify management of your growing applications without managing your own custom load balancer infrastructure.

The redundant architecture provides a flexible way to add health monitoring and high availability to your applications with ease. You can also easily horizontally scale your applications and services and meet growth demands with just a few clicks. Most importantly, all your load balancer clusters can be easily managed using both our user friendly customer portal and the Vultr API.

Vultr Load Balancers provide many features in one convenient package, including:

• Multiple traffic balancing algorithms
• Support for TCP, HTTP, and HTTPS
• Health checks to ensure traffic is routed only to healthy nodes
• Automated failover so you don't have to worry about downtime
• Detailed cluster metrics

While we've included many features in our initial release, additional upgrades will be added soon. In the coming weeks, we will add support for IPv6, SSL through Lets Encrypt, support for our Go and JavaScript client along with terraform and vultr-cli, additional protocols, and more!
