Abstract

Abstract- The servers’ nature of having bottleneck situations makes the load balancing one of the essential services in the networks, particularly with the users’ increasing load. This current paper investigates the technique of load-balancing related to Software-Defined Network (SDN). Due to the nature of the paper, there shall be processes of analysis and simulation to the software-defined network of the two servers. The following parts constitute two servers, four clients, a pox controller, and an open virtual switch. To have the proposed topology connected with the pox controller, there shall be the utilization of the OpenFlow protocol. The results demonstrate that the use of the technique of load balancing assists in equally distributing the requests among the servers.
