Load Balancing Multiple LLs

Load Balancing Multiple LLs

Load Balancing Multiple LLs


This forum doesn't appear very active so if there is a better place to put this I'd love to know.

Currently we have a 10mb LL and a /24 IP range from our provider, due to increases in what we are hosting we are looking at possibilities of taking a 2nd 10mb LL for redundancy and bandwidth purposes from a 2nd company (again for redundancy).

The question really is, how do I balance inbound connections for a site hosted over both connections (say connection A died)? Is it possible in theory and what do I need for this kind of thing in practice?

Any thoughts?

RE: Load Balancing Multiple LLs

Is your /24 a PA block from your provider or is it your own PI block?

If your IP address are "Provider Independent" then you would need to multi-home to both providers using BGP. This also means that you would require an AS number.

If your /24 is PA from your ISP then you won't be able to route them via a 2nd ISP.
