Seeking best practices for managing Odoo Community in a multi-server, load-balanced stack

BACKGROUND:  We have several successful Odoo installations running on single-server instances, but are looking at rolling out a deployment of Odoo Community on a multi-server stack sitting behind a load balancer and are seeking advice and best-practices on doing so. 

Initially, I had wanted to title this post "How to set the path for all user-uploaded files", but then realised that 1) this title doesn't give enough information about what we're trying to achieve and 2) while we may get correct answers, our overall methodology has not been peer reviewed.

EXAMPLE:  We envision multiple servers sitting behind a load balancer, with the Odoo application files mirrored across each and any media and/or other resource files (images, uploads, etc) being uploaded-to and served-from block storage.

QUESTIONS:  To boil everything down, our questions are:

  1. Is the architecture described above even possible with Odoo, and if so, how would we go about modifying where Odoo keeps its resource files (web-stuff mostly)?

  2. If the above architecture isn't possible or feasible in Odoo, are there any other alternatives for getting Odoo off of a single-server environment?

Thanks for your time everyone, and I look forward to your replies and comments.
