 Ahhhh, I think I see.

 This is a means to keep a user's session current across several
 servers. It basically creates a "session-like" communication between
 servers so that a load balancer can direct traffic accordingly
 without losing the user's state.

 Is that it?

I wouldn't call it communication, but that's the gist, yes.


Are the server's sharing a common database?
