Hi. This is definitely doable. Some options:

1. Use a front-end load-balancer. This makes your life very easy.
2. Use MX records.
3. Use various tools available for FreeBSD for IP fail-over.

One of your biggest concerns is going to be storage. If a server fails-over
do you need to worry about the secondary server having access to the
primary's files? You didn't provide quite enough detail for me to tell.
