Load Balancing is the process by which workload is distributed across multiple virtual or dedicated servers. The load balancer takes care of distributing the load and monitors the capacity and availability of the existing nodes.
Load balancing distributes your services across multiple servers, such as webservers. This means that the platform can simultaneously handle more visitors and the visitor is not affected by a possible failure of one of the web servers when the load exceeds one particular server's maximum capacity. A load balancer is also useful when your website requires a certain performance which can be obtained more easily in a multiple server setting.
i3D.net offers various types of managed hardware load balancing:
- Brocade ADX

The delivery of the requested services in a load balancing situation is like every other i3D.net service: the traffic between the servers and optional load balancer(s) is distributed locally.
