  • Hi,

    What’s the definition of your word “Load Distributed”?

    From the load distribution definition in Exchange service, the load distribution is in distributing the load evenly when all servers are available. However, when one or more servers are unavailable, the load distribution may become uneven among the remaining servers, especially if your organization is distributed across multiple Active Directory sites.

    Network Load Balancing (NLB) is one of the load distribution technologies. Network Load Balancing has many advantages over other load balancing solutions that can introduce single points of failure or performance bottlenecks. Because there are no special hardware requirements for Network Load Balancing, you can use any industry standard compatible computer in a Network Load Balancing cluster.
