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

What is 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.

What is Pound? A reverse proxy, load balancer and HTTPS front-end for Web server(s). Pound was developed to enable distributing the load among several Web-servers and to allow for a convenient SSL wrapper for those Web servers that do not offer it natively.

AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) and Pound can be primarily classified as "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" tools.

          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.)
