In this tutorial we have explored the concepts of load balancing and how you can use them in a pratical way on the Nectar Research Cloud.
This tutorial walked through the process of setting up some advanced networking resources to demonstrate how the load balancing service works.
In practice, creating so many resources in a manual way can be error prone and tedious, so we recommend that you build your resources in a programmatic way, such as with the Nectar Orchestration Service.
