Network load balancing intelligently distributes traffic across multiple nodes and is a critical component of any high availability server configuration. Load balancers can greatly increase the speed & reliability of your web application because if one of your server nodes fails or becomes overloaded the traffic is automatically shifted to another server node without any interruption of service. Another advantage of load balancing is that nodes may be selectively added and removed from the load balancing pool allowing for easy server maintenance without disruption of service.
