Media praise for Server Load Balancing

"An increasing number of shops are putting clustering and
load-balancing technologies into place so as to provide high
availability and an economic way to scale server capacity. The
slender Server Load Balancing explains the state of the art in
multiple-server technologies implemented at Layers 4 and 5
on the OSI network model. Though author Tony Bourke
includes a fair bit of good information on configuring four
commercial load-balancing solutions, the most valuable
part of his work is his high-level discussions of how load
balancing fits into a larger network environment, and his
explanations of the relative merits of alternative approaches to the problem."
