NSX Advanced Load Balancer is a software-based solution that provides real time analytics, application visibility, and elastic application delivery services, such as SSL termination, load balancing, and content acceleration.

NSX Advanced Load Balancer includes two components, the Controller and SEs. The Controller stores and manages all policies related to application delivery services and acts as a single point of control while providing GUI, REST APIs, and real time analytics services. The SEs are micro load balancers, which handle network traffic and provide application delivery services.
