What is internal load balancing?

It’s a new preview feature for Azure Virtual Machines with private IP addresses. The internally load-balanced endpoint is only accessible within a virtual network (for virtual machines within a virtual network) or cloud service (for virtual machines outside a virtual network). Internal load balancing is useful for multi-tier applications where some of the application tiers aren’t public-facing, yet require load balancing functionality.
