Improving availability with Application Load Balancer automatic target weights

Improving availability with Application Load Balancer automatic target weights

In this blog, we explore Automatic Target Weights (ATW), which can reduce the number of errors users experience when using web applications. ATW provides the ability to detect and mitigate gray failures for targets behind Application Load Balancers (ALB). A gray failure occurs when an ALB target passes active load balancer health checks, making it look healthy, but still returns errors. This scenario could be caused by many things, including application bugs, a dependency failure, intermittent network packet loss, a cold cache on a newly launched target, CPU overload, and more.

Announcing AWS Global Accelerator IPv6 support for Network Load Balancer (NLB) endpoints

AWS Global Accelerator now offers support for routing IPv6 traffic directly to dual-stack Network Load Balancer (NLB) endpoints. With this support, you can use dual-stack NLB endpoints behind dual-stack accelerators to achieve end-to-end IPv6 connectivity. In this post, we describe how you can set up a dual-stack accelerator with NLB endpoints, and review considerations for […]

Build Global SD-WANs with AWS Cloud WAN Tunnel-less Connect

In July 2022, we announced the general availability of AWS Cloud WAN. With that, we launched the AWS Transit Gateway Connect feature, which provides a native way to extend your SD-WAN (Software defined wide area network) infrastructure into AWS using Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnels. Today, we are announcing Tunnel-less Connect for Cloud WAN. This […]

Announcing Amazon Virtual Private Gateway Ingress Routing support for Gateway Load Balancer

Today, on 30th August 2023, AWS launched a new enhancement to the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) Ingress Routing feature. With this enhancement, customers can now specify a Gateway Load Balancer Endpoint (GWLBE) as the next-hop in the virtual private gateway (VGW) route table. This allows customers to inspect their traffic coming into AWS […]

Announcing AWS Global Accelerator IPv6 support for Amazon EC2 endpoints

AWS Global Accelerator now offers dual-stack accelerators that let you route both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances as endpoints, in addition to Application Load Balancers. In this post, we describe the benefits of using dual-stack accelerators with IPv6 EC2 endpoints, and go through a step-by-step guide for adding […]

Using load balancer target group health thresholds to improve availability

Introduction AWS recently added features to our Elastic Load Balancers (ELB) that give you control over when they take measures to shift traffic between targets. In this blog, we will explore these new capabilities and review how you can use them to improve the availability and resiliency of your applications. Two types of Elastic Load […]
