As an organization administrator, by configuring virtual services which distribute traffic across multiple server pools, you can balance the workloads in your data centers that are backed by NSX-T Data Center.

Starting with version 10.2, VMware Cloud Director provides load-balancing services by using the capabilities of VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi Networks).

VMware Cloud Director supports L4 and L7 load balancing that you can configure on an NSX-T Data Center edge gateway.

Level 4 load balancing (L4) directs traffic based on data from network and transport layer protocols, such as IP address and TCP port.

Level 7 load balancing (L7) distributes traffic based on attributes such as HTTP header, uniform resource identifier, SSL session ID, and HTML form data.
