When you enable load balancing, it adds other features, such as application security, Network Load Balancing, DNS Load Balancing, Network Load Balancing, Server Load Balancing and many more.

When enabled, this feature provides a platform for you to input all of the server addresses over which the load of requests will be evenly spread, resulting in smooth horizontal scalability. This feature will enhance the User experience as it will automatically detect the server failure and redirect it to other available servers.
