Comment WLBS vs LVS (Score 4, Interesting) 93 93

Looking at these images (LVS and WLBS) it seems with LVS there is a single point of failure with the load balancer box. With Windows load balancing there is no "balancer box" and if any one server fails the cluster continues without missing a beat.

How does LVS work if the balancer box fails?
