  • H

    hardware load-balancing device (HLD)

    Load balancing is a technique used to distribute workloads uniformly across servers or other compute resources to optimize network efficiency, reliability and capacity.

  • T

    transparent addressing

    On a wide area network (WAN), transparent addressing is a method of network addressing in which all intermediate node addresses are spoofed, so the client and server see each other's addresses and port configurations as if there were no intermediate nodes.
