AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) vs Eureka: What are the differences?

Developers describe AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) as "Automatically distribute your incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances". 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. On the other hand, Eureka is detailed as "AWS Service registry for resilient mid-tier load balancing and failover". Eureka is a REST (Representational State Transfer) based service that is primarily used in the AWS cloud for locating services for the purpose of load balancing and failover of middle-tier servers.

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) can be classified as a tool in the "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category, while Eureka is grouped under "Open Source Service Discovery".

"Easy" is the top reason why over 46 developers like AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), while over 15 developers mention "Easy setup and integration with spring-cloud " as the leading cause for choosing Eureka.

Eureka is an open source tool with 7.88K GitHub stars and 2.16K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Eureka's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) has a broader approval, being mentioned in 711 company stacks & 301 developers stacks; compared to Eureka, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

      I use an Application Load Balancer to balance the load to the EC2 clusters of nightly.zerotoherojs.com and dojo.zerotoherojs.com.

      Addditionally, ELB protects my cluster against DDOS attacks: So it is multi-birds with one stone.

      We're progressively migrating from classic ELB to newer ALB for ssl offloading and NLB for internal load balancing.

      For balancing the presentation tier, and for SSL offloading (which is great for performance.)
