We use Nginx on six boxes in conjunction with Heartbeat2. The main web
server IP is automatically reassigned if the current web server box
goes down.

This setup generally works as intended, although Heartbeat2
occasionally misbehaves. It is apparently not as mature as the
original Heartbeat.

If you only have two boxes, consider using Heartbeart (not
Heartbeat2), which is also simpler to configure and maintain.
