I can see the value of running 2 load balanced servers for failover, ... but wouldn't your suggestion of running 2 http servers and 1 dB server defeat the purpose of running 2 http servers? I mean, assuming the purpose of 2 load-balanced servers is to provide for redundancy, in the case of a data-driven web application, if the 1 dB server goes down, you still havea single point of failure, and no failover for the dB, thus the entire webapp would be down in that case, wouldn't it?
