I'm planning to build my first balancer for one of our website, using apaches mod_proxy and mod_proxy_balancer. Having not so many external IP's I'm thinking about to use each machines Internal IP but I can not decide if this would be a good workaround or not!enter image description here

Is it going to be enough fast? This is a usable or not?


This is what everybody else does (who also doesn't have enough IPv4 addresses).

You could also use your IPv6 addresses internally, if you have gotten them yet.

  • Thank you very much for your feedback. One issue is not really clear for me. How to handle the web contents and mysql database? Is it a problem if the workers are Virtual Machines? – fefe Jan 24 '13 at 8:07
  • That sounds like a completely different question. :) – Michael Hampton Jan 24 '13 at 8:11
