Previous article: Using a static IP address with Amazon Elastic Load Balancing
Hi, I am Agata.
This time, we will actually set up one of the methods to use a static IP address with Amazon Elastic Load Balancing that we discussed last time, using NLB and Global Accelerator. I will try to do this using Accelerator. The reason is that this is much easier for new setups.
As written in the previous article, Global Accelerator is basically used in combination with ALB, so let’s create ALB first. However, it is actually possible to set up Global Accelerator at the same time when setting up ALB.
First, proceed as you would normally create an ALB.
It is assumed that the VPC, Security Group, and Target Group required for ALB have already been created.
With these steps, the Application Load Balancer and Global Accelerator are configured at the same time. Let’s check the static IP address that has been set.
Thus, it is very easy to set up ALB and Global Accelerator at the same time. It is also possible to use Global Accelerator later for an ALB that has already been set up.
It is also possible to specify an EC2 instance or an Elastic IP address as the Global Accelerator endpoint without using ALB.
In the next issue, I will cover the configuration using NLB.
