Yes I read this document and found it very informative.

I don't think I'll be able to detect Asterisk failures automatically so
basically I'll rely on a manual processes to either move from one server to
the other or to sync configs (in fact, I'll keep both configs as
independant as possible to avoid one machine's config to corrupt the other).
