The simplest way to configure hardware load balancers is to create a fallback list of the affinity methods that will be applied by the load balancer. For example, the load balancer will try cookie-based affinity first, then SSL session ID, and then source IP affinity

If you have more than eight Client Access servers in a single Active Directory site, your organization will need a more robust load balancing solution. Although there are robust software load balancing solutions available, a hardware load balancing solution provides the most capacity.
