Can cloudflared replicas used as a load balancer

Can we use cloudflared deploy as replica feature as load balancer.

Can anyone provide more ideas on this feature

We recommend using the Load Balancing product in this case. We have a guide on how to use it with tunnels https://developers.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-one/tutorials/migrate-lb-tunnel.

To elaborate a bit further, cloudflared replicas serve for high availability from your end. It’s the analogous to why cloudflared connects 4 times to 2 colos (to provide high availability from our end).

But for Load Balancing, it’s as Chung-Ting said above, it doesn’t come from either of those, and should use the LB product instead: https://developers.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-one/connections/connect-apps/routing-to-tunnel/lb
