Configuring Network Load Balancing


You may want to load-balance the front-end servers. Do not use Windows Clustering Services to load-balance the front-end servers because there is no data stored on the front-end servers; each front-end is essentially a copy of every other, so failing over is not useful. Use Network Load Balancing to evenly spread client requests across multiple front-end servers. For more information, see Network Load Balancing Clusters.
