"Network Transferable Computer (NTC)" is a system, which transports a running image of OS to other computers using Virtual Machine. We propose a new load balancing method that uses NTC system associated with Mobile IP for building a server. In this method, the system analyzes the information gathered from the local network to which the target server is attached and it moves the server itself to an another network so that considerable access traffics do not pass the particular path. As soon as analysis of the local information is done, the system can decide whether the server moves or not, and, if it does, where the server will move. After moving to another network, it is possible to get more information from the network and to modify the decision criteria. Thus this method realizes an adaptable load balancing on network traffic.
