The simplest Domain Name System (DNS) failover scenario is to send all traffic from a primary endpoint to a backup location when the primary endpoint is unreachable. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, setup and custom configurations are fast and intuitive.
Cloud DNS load balancing—ratio load balancing, in particular—is perfect for controlling your migration to the cloud. Simply steer a small percentage of traffic to the “new” infrastructure, monitor the results, and increase the amount of traffic at your own pace.
Load Balancing for Test
Distribute load across multiple compute instances as you scale mission-critical applications and leverage Oracle Health Checks to ensure users are sent to healthy endpoint.
Traffic Steering policies work with any public-facing endpoint and serve as a control plane for any combination of your own data centers and cloud infrastructure instances.
With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's industry-leading geolocation data you can ensure the lowest-latency response for end users. This same data can also help with compliance based on the users’ countries of origin.
Control access to new or beta features before rolling out for general availability with source-based steering policies based on geolocation or IP prefix.
In this case, conditional steering is based on the originating enterprise, mobile operator, or other communications provider. Preferred autonomous system numbers (ASNs) can be directed to free resources while all other traffic can be directed to paid resources to support commercial agreements that may be in place.
