A technique used to target certain requests to certain backend servers, e.g. All Servlet requests from one server. All static HTML from another.

Reverse proxy load balancing is generally used when you have servers with different amounts of CPUs and Memory. You might use powerful servers for SSL sessions and others tohandle static html.
