Ask yourself: Do you really, seriously need load balancing?  Or are you thinking
that you need load balancing when what you really need is HA?

To the best of my knowledge, there isn't a multi-master implementation on the

two clients running down two different nodes will get a consistent view of an
object.  Do you know of one?
