Add Zend Load Balancer as an image for our droplets.

Zend Load Balancer is an easy-to-use software load balancing solution with a web control panel that anyone looking for a full-featured load balancer can install onto a droplet.

The load balancer is fully featured, and allows us to manage our own fully features software load balancer. Many details can be found on their website:

I'm sure it doesn't take more than a few minutes to allow us access to different OS installs, so providing this as an option will likely be quite useful to anyone needing a decent solution to load balancing.

    Zen Load Balancer created ZVNcloud, load balancer as a service with Digital Ocean technology.

    I think Zen Load Balancer would be a good plan. It comes as an ISO based on Debian. Shouldnt be too difficult to create a template from it and then put it up for people to create Droplets from.

    If you could produce this template it would be greatly appreciated.

    +1 vote from me.

    For load balancing we usually recommend HAProxy or Nginx which are more of a default setup for this type of service.

    Note, it's Zen Load Balancer, not Zend Load Balancer. Sorry. Was way too tired when I wrote this suggestion. Can someone fix it, please?
