Hi Yassen,

> Any given node can be stopped or additional nodes can be added with almost no interruption. If the active node is taken down, CARP will appoint a new active node and its front-end will start accepting requests replacing the gone node. New nodes will announce themselves to the front-end apps via multicast.

But CARP only handles when the _machine_ goes down, right? Have you planned for the scenario when if Riak would go down, but the machine would be responsive? If not, haproxy could be an option.
