Getting Started with Load Balancers

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.

Just the essentials to go from zero to working in a few minutes.
Use the official command-line client for DigitalOcean’s API to create and configure a load balancer for multiple backend web servers.
