Load baloancing

Load balancing is a technique used to distribute the load(work to be performed) evenly or unevenly between resource like computers, network links,CPUs or any other computer resources to get a better resource utilization and increased load handling capability. Since number of resources involved is more than one, it increases reliability because if any single unit involved fails, other can take over.

A very common example of load balancing system is a server farm to handle traffic.
