Load Balancing Requirements of Exchange Protocols

Microsoft Exchange protocols and client access services have different load balancing requirements. Some Microsoft Exchange protocols and client access services require client to Client Access server affinity. Others will work without it but will display performance improvements from such affinity. Other Exchange protocols don’t require client to Client Access server affinity and performance doesn’t decrease without affinity.

It also enables your deployment to handle more traffic than one server can process while offering a single host name for your clients.
