[CDMI Proxy] Add ability to split access over multiple access servers


For scalable access via CDMI proxy a way to serve user requests by multiple access servers is needed. This is especially important when the CDMI proxy mediates access to scalable storage like the Azure blob store.

Would a description of a possible deployment be ok?

I mean, basically, any reverse proxy (e.g. nginx) with cdmiproxys as backends should be ok. metadata store - couchdb - has its own replication method.

Would be ok but remember also a load balancer that will dispatch requests between the proxies; perhaps DNS SRV record is sufficient (I'm not sure, never tested that).
Nonetheless, to prove it works a deployment on some infrastructure and performance tests would also be needed.
