Load Balancing Stack Overflow

by Jeff Atwood

on September 4, 2009

Starting right now, we will be load balancing the Stack Overflow servers -- going from one web tier server, to two. This means you may end up on a different server depending on what HAProxy decides the hash of your IP address is.

This shouldn't cause any problems, but ...

Failure is always an option

If you notice anything unusual, feel free to report it on meta.stackoverflow.com. We'll be monitoring closely.
