I have a few questions on load balancing. Say if we have only one
instance and it goes down for some reason, it will not get the records
from koji during downtime.
So if we have a load balancer and more than 1 instance (say 2) , will
the load balancer push all requests to the live instance ?
If yes, then having a load balancer is a good idea.

Only thing I know is the regular database backup.

Currently the koji-plugin connects to the server using XMLRPC.  They
can communicate if they can reach each other. Not sure how the current
infra works.
