Default Wordpress site in a cluster


I would like to run a Wordpress site in a cluster environment and would like to know what you think about that. Will it work like this? Anything special to consider?

Here are the details:
- 1 Wordpress blog
- 2 Debian 6 servers, Apache, PHP, MySQL, ISPConfig 3
- MySQL replication (master/slave)
- File replication via unison every 5 minutes via cron
- DNS entry ( that refers to both server IP addresses

So users get randomly redirected to the first or the second cluster node, but the replication (file and MySQL) keeps both servers in sync.

This scenario works with simple websites but I have no experience with Wordpress sites. Please let me know what you think about that.
