Load balancing is an extra feature of Cachoid. During the cachoid plan selection or upgrade, you are prompted to select the number of locations you’d like to spin your cachoids in. So if you select Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Houston, your cachoid CNAME will resolve to three IPs. One IP for each of the selected location. Each of these IPs distributes traffic across all your three cachoids. The load balancer ensures failover in case one of your cachoids is unhealthy or unavailable.
