What's Load Balancing Remote Desktop Services

Postby chicagotech » Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:39 am

Quoted online:
The load balancer is deployed in front of the various RDS servers to provide load balancing and fail–over
functionality. Clients then connect to a Virtual Service (VIP) on the load balancer rather than connecting
directly to a one of the RDS servers. These connections are then load balanced between the associated
RDS servers to distribute the load according to the load balancing algorithm selected.
Using a Loadbalancer.org clustered pair with multiple Microsoft RDS servers enables the following key
benefits:
• High-Availability – Servers are continually health checked by the load balancer and are
automatically removed from the load balanced pool if the health check fails
• Performance – Adding additional servers distributes the load and improves performance
• Maintainability – Servers can easily be removed from the pool in a controlled manner to allow
maintenance tasks such as applying software updates to be carried out

When a server is down, the traffic is routed to other servers, ensuring there is no single point of failure. Moreover, the infrastructure can be quickly scaled to meet changing business demands. As servers are relieved from tasks such as TCP optimization, application performance is improved. Application resilience is achieved with no site failures.

While RDS load balancing is a great tool to manage remote network connections, it comes with certain challenges. The major challenge is the complexity in configuring and managing the tool.

RDS load balancing is not part of the basic tool set. IT administrators must install and configure an additional component called Network Load Balancing (NLB).
