Scaling with ColdFusion MX 7 Load Balancing

New to ColdFusion MX 7 Enterprise Edition is integrated load balancing and failover, with the capability to create and manage a cluster directly from the ColdFusion Administrator. ColdFusion MX 7 Load Balancing monitors your ColdFusion MX 7 servers and can redirect requests away from a server that is beginning to enter a busy state. When ColdFusion Load Balancing redirects requests to another server, it does so by redirecting them to the URL of another machine in the cluster. If your server is completely out of commission (that is, turned off), ColdFusion Load Balancing cannot communicate with it and therefore cannot redirect requests away from it.

Perhaps the most attractive aspect of using ColdFusion MX 7 Load Balancing for load-balancing solutions is its integration with ColdFusion MX 7. ColdFusion MX 7 Load Balancing is extremely easy to configure and set up, unlike many other software and hardware load-balancing solutions.
