Cloudflare Load Balancing

Maximize application performance and availability
Paid add-on

Cloudflare Load Balancing distributes traffic across your endpoints, which reduces endpoint strain and latency and improves the experience for end users.

​​ Features

​​ Load balancing and failover

Distribute traffic evenly across your healthy endpoints, automatically failing over when an endpoint is unhealthy or unresponsive.

​​ Active monitoring

Monitor your endpoints at configurable intervals and across multiple data centers to look for specific status codes, response text, and timeouts.

​​ Intelligent routing

Choose whether to distribute requests based on endpoint latency, a visitor’s geographic region, or even a visitor’s GPS coordinates.

​​ Custom rules

Customize the behavior of your load balancer based on the characteristics of individual requests.

​​ Analytics

Review comprehensive analytics to evaluate traffic flow, assess endpoint health status, and review changes in pools and pool health over time.
