DigitalOcean Load Balancers are a fully-managed, highly available network load balancing service. Load balancers distribute traffic to groups of Droplets, which decouples the overall health of a backend service from the health of a single server to ensure that your services stay online.
We have reenabled the creation of new resources in SFO2 for all customers.
We have deprecated our legacy load balancer scaling system in all datacenter regions. This includes the deprecation of the
do-loadbalancer-size-slug annotation for DigitalOcean Kubernetes load balancers.
Horizontal scaling is now available in all regions.
You can now customize the amount of time a load balancer allows HTTP connections to remain idle before closing it. The maximum amount time you can set is 600 seconds (10 minutes).
Setting a custom time out length has no effect on HTTPS and HTTP/2 forwarding rules using TLS passthrough.
