What makes us different

Not your average
Load balancer company

We are contrarians, it stems from our founders who have always questioned the status quo and the wisdom of the crowd, but has percolated into our broader company culture.

Loadbalancer.org - What's in a name

We are a commercial business rather than a not-for-profit organisation, but the ‘dot-org’ label plays into two key characteristics of our culture. We are heavily reliant on open-source software and make an active contribution back into the community. And although we seek to create profits for our shareholders this is not our driving principle, to the point where we’d rather recommend a competitor product than sell the wrong solution.

Aaron West

We were delighted last week to host Smoothwall for a day with our team. Fuelled by coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, our discussions helped us learn from one another so that we can work together even more effectively.

Load balancing: the driving force behind successful object storage

Himakshi Goswami

Do you know that your Kindle is spying on you? It knows how fast you read a book, how many pages you read, at which point you stopped reading and which passages you have bookmarked.

Smart, secure encryption with SNI

Neil Stone

In the early days of the Internet, there was very little encrypted traffic. People simply trusted that nobody was out to get them. But later on, security and encryption became an important part of online life.
