I was thinking of something like Packeteer, ie. not a regular PC

At this point, we have one Apache acting both as web server, and load
balancer to two other Apache servers, a NAS to host static files (JPG,

I was wondering if Apache's modules that handle load balancing offer
performance on par with dedicated load balancers.

Thank you.
