Load Balancer Using Software-Defined Network – POX

Project Goals

  • POX is a popular Python based open source SDN controller with the help of which we can easily check the configuration of a customized networking environment.
  • Our project will easily setup the CDN(Content-Delivery Network) environments using POX loadbalancer
  • The POX loadbalancer is modified by our team using Round-Robin Algorithm(prev: Random Select)

What is CDN?

  • A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of proxy servers deployed in multiple data centers via the Internet. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance.
