Install and Configure Linux Virtual Server (LVS) for Load Balancing
Linux Virtual Server (LVS) is a highly available and highly scalable virtual server that is built on a cluster of actual servers using a load balancer. This approach allows the service that is being provided to appear as a single Linux server. In this hands-on lab, you are tasked with setting up LVS in order to provide a virtual service for two Apache HTTP servers.
