Thanks for sharing!

I have a question. What happens when the load balancer reaches its limits too?
Assuming it can’t take in more than 1000 request at the same time, what happens when there are 3000 requests at the same time?
I assume that there might an approach where you “vertically scale” the LB, but at some point the limits will be reached as well.
