Load Balancing Stack Overflow

Starting right now, we will be load balancing the Stack Overflow servers — going from one web tier server, to two. This means you may end up on a different server depending on what HAProxy decides the hash of your IP address is.

This shouldn’t cause any problems, but …

Failure is always an option

If you notice anything unusual, feel free to report it on meta.stackoverflow.com. We’ll be monitoring closely.
