What Is Elastic Load Balancing?

The UDA channel is for Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture including the Analytical Ecosystem and other UDA influences. This channel provides information specific to the integration and co-existence of multiple systems, in particular when a mix of Aster, Teradata, and Hadoop are present. It is also meant to support information around the UDA enabling technologies so products like Viewpoint, Data Mover, Connectors, QueryGrid, etc.

What Is Elastic Load Balancing?

Elastic Load Balancing distributes incoming application traffic across multiple EC2 instances, in multiple Availability Zones. This increases the fault tolerance of your applications.

The load balancer serves as a single point of contact for clients, which increases the availability of your application. You can add and remove instances from your load balancer as your needs change, without disrupting the overall flow of requests to your application. Elastic Load Balancing scales your load balancer as traffic to your application changes over time, and can scale to the vast majority of workloads automatically.

You can configure health checks, which are used to monitor the health of the registered instances so that the load balancer can send requests only to the healthy instances. You can also offload the work of encryption and decryption to your load balancer so that your instances can focus on their main work.
