5.11.1 Background
The vCloud Director environment is compatible with traditional IP based load balancing schemes. You can even run multicast-based load balancing schemes with some caveats. Global load balancers can also be used with vCloud Director-hosted virtual machines, as back end servers do not need any special configuration options.
VMware vCloud Director 5.1 offers options for self-service load balancing using the vCloud Networking and Security Edge built-in load balancer.
