Learn how to set up load balancing in Virtual Machine Manager. This allows the load to be spread and balanced among multiple servers and network cards to keep any single server from being overwhelmed with network traffic.
- [Instructor] Virtual Machine Manager has a feature…to allow third-party load balancers…to integrate with Virtual Machine Manager…and a third-party load balancer is basically a product…made by a company other than Microsoft…to balance the load of virtual machines…between multiple different hosts…so that no single host gets overloaded with requests…for virtual machine traffic.…And we do that by performing several steps.…First step is to create a static IP pool…and we've done that in a previous video…which you can take a look at and see how that's done.…
That allows us to set specific IP addresses…for new virtual machines.…The next thing to do would be to install…the load balance configuration from the manufacturer.…They will actually give you some software…with a configuration in it to upload…to Virtual Machine Manager.…Next thing we need to do is to specify the host groups…and we created host groups in previous videos.…Then we want to specify the model.…So there may be lots of different models…in that configuration that's been given to you…
