Load Balancing

Software Load Balancers for Your Cloud

Triton supports several load balancing options. Click on the icons below to explore the details of load balancing solutions based upon NGINX on AutoPilot and Triton CNS.

Triton Container Name Service (CNS)

Triton Container Name Service (CNS) is a completely automatic, universal DNS for your containers and VMs on Triton. It is tightly integrated with Triton to eliminate complexity and simplify operations.

Triton Compute

Triton CNS serves address records (both A and AAAA) for containers by instance name and tags. Multiple containers providing the same service can share the same tag and will be returned in the same address record. Because Triton CNS knows when containers are started or stopped, including unexpected stops, the DNS information is automatically updated and requests will be sent to running containers.
