L4 Regional Load Balancing

Load balancing of “North-South” traffic, or user traffic as entering from the Internet. L4 Loadbalancing separates traffic at the TCP layer, allowing multiple higher-level protocols to be balanced. However, it cannot distinguish between elements in those higher protocols (eg: HTTP path, parameters)

This is generally done by providing a single endpoint which maps to a list of backend host:port pairs in the same datacenter, region, or zone.
