In this video, Robert McMillen talks about how to install the prerequisites to network load balancing. Load balancing is used to add redundancy to a network so multiple hosts will respond to the same request for data. In a failover cluster environment the Network Load Balancing (NLB) feature distributes traffic across several servers by using the TCP/IP networking protocol. By combining two or more computers that are running applications into a single virtual cluster, NLB provides reliability and performance for web servers and other mission-critical servers. The servers in an NLB cluster are called hosts, and each host runs a separate copy of the server applications. NLB distributes incoming client requests across the hosts in the cluster. You can configure the load that is to be handled by each host.
