[HDGEM] Application routing enables a single load balancer to distribute requests intelligently across multiple applications or services

Application routing occurs before the load balancing decision.

If you consider modern microservices-based applications combined with APIs (URIs representing specific requests) you can see how this type of functionality becomes useful.

An API can be represented as a single domain (api.hdgem.com) to the client, but behind the scenes, it is actually comprised of multiple applications or services that are scaled individually using a combination of application routing and load balancing.
