Important: This guide applies only to on-premises/private cloud installations. It does not apply to OutSystems Enterprise Cloud, where the load balancing mechanism is provided to the customer by OutSystems (where applicable).
OutSystems Platform scales horizontally with the addition of front-ends to suit the needed capacity. In a farm environment, balancing the application load across multiple front-ends is a basic requirement to ensure higher availability.
OutSystems Platform does not include a load balancing mechanism of its own. To balance load between front-ends in an OutSystems Platform farm, you must resort to one of many load balancing mechanisms on the market.
