In many current network applications, sometimes a server can not meet the requirements of the client, at this time only by adding servers to http://www.aliyun.com/zixun/aggregation/7432.html "> Solve problems."
So is there a way or technology to solve such problems? You can use a Network Load Balancing cluster in Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 (this article describes how Network Load Balancing technology is implemented in Windows Server 2003).
The advantages of Network Load Balancing
1. Network Load Balancing allows you to propagate incoming requests to up to 32 servers, where you can use up to 32 servers to share external network request services. Network Load Balancing technology ensures that they can respond quickly even in heavy loads.
2. Network Load Balancing external only need to provide an IP address (or domain name).
3. Services are not interrupted if one or more of the servers in the Network Load Balancing are unavailable. Network Load Balancing automatically detects that the server is unavailable and can quickly reassign client traffic to the remaining servers. This protection will help you provide uninterrupted service for your critical business processes. You can increase the number of Network Load Balancing servers based on increased network traffic.
4. Network Load Balancing can be implemented on a regular computer.
In Windows Server 2003, Network Load Balancing applications include Internet Information Services (IIS), ISA Server 2000 firewall and proxy servers, VPN virtual private networks, terminal servers, Windows Media Services (Windows video-on-demand, video broadcast). At the same time, Network Load Balancing can help improve your server performance and scalability to meet the growing demand for internet-based clients.
Network Load Balancing allows clients to access the cluster with a logical Internet name and virtual IP address (also known as a cluster IP address), while retaining the respective names of each computer.
Below, we will introduce the implementation and application of Network Load Balancing on two common computers with Windows Server 2003 installed.
