Specifically, the load balancer configuration was overwhelming the very services it was supposed to be load balancing. Before we completely blame the load balancer, Stefan goes on to explain that the root of the problem lay in the load balancing algorithm used to distribute ... (more)

We explain the key components of this model, including a taxonomy of data service operation types, a mechanism for capturing the entities that the data services are... (more)
