I have a web application, i.g. a WAR file. I will deploy this war on several web-servers. They have the URL. How can I configure the web-server, assumed I use Apache Tomcat, sothat the web access can be distribute to these web servers? For example I have 10 web-servers, the daily access is 100000. I want these accesses to be devided to 10 web servers.

How can I do that? Can I just make configuration or do I need hardware such as dispatcheer?

You will need a load balancer.  This will sit in front of your web servers.  The load balancer will forward the request to one of your web servers such as round-robin, least number of connections, .etc.

Example

Load Balancer --> SWITCH --> 10 Web Servers

Possible suggestions are the Cisco CSS ( Content Services Switch ) Appliance or using Linux VS.

You mean, one can either use hardware such as Cisco CSS, or software such as Linux VS. Right?

How about Apache Http Server? I've heard one can use the Apache Http Server to destribute the web access to Tomcat.
