    Basically, a proxy to "answer the front door" for incoming requests, and distributing them to more than one destination system.

    Hi

    Load Balancing is a generic term that refers to distributing the load of some sort. You can either distribute the traffic at the network level (among multiple interfaces, like with an EtherChannel) or for a given application protocol (e.g. HTTP) where traffic is sent to more than one server.
