Virtual Appliance Load Balancing
A virtual Load Balancer is a relatively new concept in load balancing based on the principle of virtualisation and, more specifically, virtual machines.
A virtual machine is a self contained software product including an operating system and application designed to run in a virtual environment such as VMware or Microsoft Virtual Server.
Traditionally virtual load balancers have not been able to perform as well as required, however, with significant improvements in virtualisation technology and hardware performance, this is no longer the case.
The virtual appliance load balancer is no longer limited to running in test and dev environments; with performance in excess of 100meg with minimal power, and space considerations eliminated, they are now a serious vendor in the load balancing market.
