Network Load Balancing is a clustering technology offered by Microsoft as part of all Windows Server 2000 and Windows Server 2003 family operating systems. Network Load Balancing uses a distributed algorithm to load balance network traffic across the number of hosts, helping to enhance the scalability and availability of IP-based services, such as Web, Virtual Private Networking, Streaming Media, Terminal Services, Proxy, etc. It also provides high availability by detecting host failures and automatically redistributing traffic to operational hosts.
