What is a Load-balancing switch? Sometimes referred to as layer 4-7 switches, a hardware Load-balancing device (HLD) works to extend the functionality of standard layer 2/3 switches. By directing computers to individual servers in a network, based on factors such as server processor utilization, the number of connections to a server, or the overall server performance, the HLD improves server response time allowing users to access data more readily. During times of heavy traffic-load, the use of a Load balancing switch optimizes the bandwidth available to each computer and minimizes the likelihood that any single server will be inundated by traffic. In addition to improving performance, an HLD also provides added security by protecting against intrusions such as denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
