LVS fits here almost perfectly, whereas heartbeat almost at all doesn't
fit here (heartbeat will be used for LVS failover, though).
The traffic flow is as below:
- LVS -- client (internet)
Realservers are servers in the internet and their addresses will change
from time to time; client has to access them through the LVS address,
which will be permanent.
If you have an idea how heartbeat would help here, please clarify.
