    SharePoint 2016 load balancing

    1 min read

    So you are doing an on-premise migration from 2010 to 2016, so of course in true Microsoft style, more boxes are required, so that means more web front end servers.

    Changes are that in 2010, you had 1 WFE server, and in 2016 you’ll need at least 2, or you should, so that means load balancing is required.

    Do you want Office 365 training?

    If IT has load balancing software like KEMP then I would suggest using that, if it doesn’t then use the Network Load Balancer (a feature of Windows Server OS), which will involve playing around with IP addresses and hyper v settings. More skills for the SharePoint Admin to learn.

    Good luck
