Summary

So what will this book do for you? Well, it assumes you know nothing about how the Internet operates under the covers or how load balancing works in general. It will teach you the basics of how the Internet hangs together and what browsing the Web actually entails. We’ll show you how to speed up your web application using caching, how to use various types of load balancing, and the key concepts (and more importantly how to apply them) to make your applications easy to scale. We’ll also show you how to cluster your load balancers for high availability, terminate your SSL sessions for higher throughput, and build robust solutions. Finally, we’ll look at new technologies that you need to watch, such as IPv6 and cloud computing.

In short, this book will take you from being curious about making your web site faster and more reliable to being someone who can easily set up such a solution, confident that they know why and how it works.
