LOAD BALANCING DEFINITION (continued): …  Web sites get a great deal of traffic usually use load balancing. For load balancing Web traffic, there are several approaches.

Usually, if two servers are used to balance a work load, a third server is needed to determine which server to assign the work to. Since load balancing requires multiple servers, it is usually combined with failover and backup services. In some approaches, the servers are distributed over different geographic locations. …
