In the transparent network use-case a single Server Endpoint can be reached through different network paths. This case is completely handled by the network infrastructure. The selected network path and Failover are transparent to the Client and the Server. Transparent network Redundancy is illustrated in Figure 34.

- A physical appliance/device such as a router or gateway which automatically changes the network routing to maintain communications.
- A virtual adapter which automatically changes the network adapter to maintain communications.
