Automatically distribute your incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances

What is AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)?

With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall flow of information. If one EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the traffic to the remaining running EC2 instances. If the failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the traffic to that instance. Elastic Load Balancing offers clients a single point of contact, and it can also serve as the first line of defense against attacks on your network. You can offload the work of encryption and decryption to Elastic Load Balancing, so your servers can focus on their main task.
AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) is a tool in the Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy category of a tech stack.
