    Wassup!

    There are a couple of different scenarios that you could mean...

    1. The differences between a PC-based and a switch-based load balancer,
    i.e. F5 Labs versus Alteon

    2. The difference between a Clustering software, such as Windows
    Clustering (or to a limited extent Resonate, althought I'll probably get
    corrected on that) and Network-based load balancers, such as Alteon, F5,
    Foundry, etc.

    3. A load balancing app written from scratch on a web server, versus
    using a load balancer.

    Which one are you referring to, or are you referring to something else?
