AWS Elastic Load Balancer Usage – How “real” is your availability?
It is surprising to see that a significant amount of AWS users are aware of the benefits of ELB, yet not familiar with the inherent opportunity to increase availability by using ELB across multiple availability zones. By not doing so, should an outage or a drop in an AWS availability zone service level, the benefit of the ELB is nearly lost. Setting up ELB across multiple availability zones is a relatively straightforward effort that can easily be done if brought to the attention of the user at the time of the ELB configuration.
