What kinf of switches you are unsing in your Datacenter.If you are using Cat6500's then you can use Cisco CSM module on the chassis to do the server load-balancing on more than that.

If you are not using 6500 you can go for Cisco 11000 series server load-balancers. You can get a fixed config model and a modular chassis in the series

Thanks for reply, btw, is it possible to loadbalance traffic using 4900 series catalyst. As somebody told me that all layer 4-7 switches are capable of doing it, thanks
