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

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB): 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; GitHub Enterprise: The on-premises version of GitHub, which you can deploy and manage in your own, secure environment. GitHub Enterprise lets developers use the tools they love across the development process with support for popular IDEs, continuous integration tools, and hundreds of third party apps and services.

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) can be classified as a tool in the "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category, while GitHub Enterprise is grouped under "Code Collaboration & Version Control".

Some of the features offered by AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) are:

  • Distribution of requests to Amazon EC2 instances (servers) in multiple Availability Zones so that the risk of overloading one single instance is minimized. And if an entire Availability Zone goes offline, Elastic Load Balancing routes traffic to instances in other Availability Zones.
  • Continuous monitoring of the health of Amazon EC2 instances registered with the load balancer so that requests are sent only to the healthy instances. If an instance becomes unhealthy, Elastic Load Balancing stops sending traffic to that instance and spreads the load across the remaining healthy instances.
  • Support for end-to-end traffic encryption on those networks that use secure (HTTPS/SSL) connections.

On the other hand, GitHub Enterprise provides the following key features:

  • Compliance and auditing
  • Hundreds of integrations
  • Flexible deployment

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 GitHub Enterprise, which is listed in 38 company stacks and 46 developer stacks.

      Since its fully open source alternative is free, GitHub Enterprise became a very hard sell as it also lacks lots of features.

      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.)
