F5 Load Balancers do this as well as load balance, and can optionally
provide SSL hardware acceleration--even if you don't get the SSL
accelerator, they will still host the SSL certs (easier to manage than
lots of web servers, since replicating is a one-line command or
web-interface "click" away).  But, likely as not, you might consider
them overkill as well.
