there is haproxy since a long time proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications - http://www.haproxy.org/#feat
At least its Exchange 2010 HAProxy VLB Appliance is a free Layer 4 based virtual load balancer that runs in VMware or Hyper-V environments. In fact there is Microsoft NLB (Network Load Balancer), a sw load balancer too but it has not been impressing many network folks (e.g.in the Multicast Mode, severe Multicast Storm and chunk up LAN bandwidth while Exchange Hub Transport /Client Access Servercan be looking at unicast instead, need some hard pulling). HAproxy may be worth while since there are also many article on its setup too e.g. http://www.stevieg.org/e2010haproxy/

there are vmware or virtural instance of LB as well from F5 vLTM, A10 vThunder and Kemp. one comparison for info http://kemptechnologies.com/sg/compare-kemp-f5-big-ip-citrix-netscaler-virtual-load-balancers/
