I’m a huge fan of analogies. They make the difficult seem easy and they can help people from one sector or field understand, in basic terms, the ideas and topics of another. Lately I’ve been using virtual hosting from Vultr and I’ve got to say, their latest post on using Load Balancers hit home. I’m in IT and I’m a first responder and the way their latest article mixed the two made load balancing seem super easy.
If you’ve never seen or used Vultr for hosting, I’d suggest giving them a try. If you’ve had challenges understanding Load Balancing, check out their article on it!
