Which Internet appliance is used to spread incoming traffic over many resources, such as web servers?

A Load balancers.

Load balancers do exactly what their name implies. Rather of directing all incoming traffic to a single server or device, traffic is distributed among devices. Proxy servers monitor and filter incoming and outgoing packets depending on predefined criteria. Spam gateways do not enable spam to enter; rather, they filter it out. Unified threat management (UTM) can use an appliance, software, or even an outside service to monitor and manage malicious network activity.
