MVA: Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess: NLB Integration - Module 4
This is module 4 of the free Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess course on Microsoft Virtual Academy available at https://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/
DirectAccess deployments have quickly grown beyond the point where a single server can provide adequate processing power. Enterprises need the flexibility to deploy additional servers quickly and transparently to meet changing load requirements.
In this module you will learn how Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess addresses these issues through built-in support for Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB) to achieve high availability and scalability for both DirectAccess and RRAS. The NLB configuration is simple to setup and automate through the new deployment wizard interface. The setup process also provides integrated support for third party external hardware-based load balancer solutions. In this module, we will configure NLB support for DirectAccess deployment.
