    - Hybrid hosting, a first step to the cloud

    Hybridizing your infrastructure is usually one of the first steps to take when entering the Cloud. Apart from most startups that we can call “cloud native”, the first step is often to use cloud services for overflow purposes (peak load) or to migrate existing services. The Multi-Cloud Load Balancer makes it easy and safe to respond to these use cases.

    - Multi-cloud Resilience

    We attach the utmost importance to providing guarantees for the service quality of our products. For example, many of you use our ["General Purpose Instances"], that offer a 99.99% SLA. If you want to increase your resilience level, you can now provide redundancy to your infrastructure with different cloud solution providers.

    - Integration of third-party products

    For specific projects or tests, you may want to distribute your traffic to third-party solutions. The Multicloud Load Balancer removes limits and allows for products to be mixed.
