Coyote Point Systems' Equalizer E450si Load Balancer

Coyote Point's technology uses NAT (network address translation) to assign a single IP address to a cluster of servers. NAT also lets the device's virtual cluster operate independently of the servers and their applications. Equalizer's NAT operation modifies inbound and outbound packets without additional configuration. All you do is set the default route for servers to Equalizer's internal IP address.
