Loadbalancing

  • 1.  Loadbalancing

    Hello,
    I have just finished deploying two secure spheres and are working very well.
    However in backend I have an application that runs on two servers and I would like to do loadbancing with imperva.
    is it possible to do this with a WAF onprem?

    Thanks

    Hi Ibrahima
    Imperva securesphere waf, doesn't do any kind of load balancing. What you can do is pass the traffic coming from internet, and let the waf inspect and block.

    It is true the WAF does not LB but there may be techniques to achieve some type of LB
    Please answer the following:

    - How many WAF's do you have deployed 
    - how is traffic normally shared between the two app servers 
    - what mode have you deployed the WAF - bridge/reverse proxy
    - how are the WAF's deployed - active/active or HA

    Hi phil, 

    thanks for your return.
    Please fine the answer 

    - How many WAF's do you have deployed  : 2 
    - how is traffic normally shared between the two app servers : Traffic is share in only one app ( but i want to share in 2 app ( same app) ) 
    - what mode have you deployed the WAF - bridge/reverse proxy : Bridge
    - how are the WAF's deployed - active/active or HA : HA

    With the GW's in HA there is no deployment that will allow you to LB traffic thru the WAF's

    If they were active/active and you had a LB in front of the WAF's you could have the LB do the load balancing between the two WAFs based on destination IP or other techniques
