Highly Available (Active-Active) Portal/Server/Datastore

We are currently working to build a highly available web GIS stack with redundant servers in 2 data centers. We would like to use a 3rd party load balancer to direct traffic to web adaptors in either datacenter.  Essentially, we want portal (using a shared content directory) sandwiched in between the web adaptors and servers (federated) in the 1st diagram. 

We have a good understanding how to create a primary/standby version of this using the out -of-the box Esri install tools, but it seems like a waste to have all those servers just sitting there when we could be directing traffic to them if available. 

 

We've done a lot of reading and can't seem find documentation that combines these two diagrams. We are wondering if it's a supported Esri config at this point. 

 

If anyone has gone down this road and would be willing to share any advice, workflows, or architecture diagrams we would be most appreciative. 

 

Thanks, 

 

James
