Load Balancing

I know ESX supports Network Load Balacing, but does it support system load balancing?

What other kinds of load balancing does ESX offer?

VMWare DRS is used to load balance VMs over different ESX Servers in a Cluster. It moves the VMs via VMotion to reach a similar load on the Servers. Also, vSMP balances the virtual CPUs over the physical CPUs on a ESX Server. Thats about it when is comes to load balancing I reckon.
