Wait, what's a load balancer?#

A load balancer is a web server that sits in front of your application, relaying requests it receives to multiple backend servers. It does this by acting as a reverse proxy, where it receives a request and holds a connection to that request open while it relays it to a backend, and finally returns that result to the original request.
