Update Elasticsearch Cluster

    I've made some more changes on the ES Cluster. I've added another node into the cluster, and configured nginx to act as a reverse proxy for the connections, load balancing across the 3 nodes.

    I've also configured a secondary nginx VPS to act as a failover to the primary nginx VPS, should that go down. If it does, the A record will change the IP address associated automatically, and route all incoming ES traffic into the alternate nginx VPS.

    I've switched the proxy from nginx to haproxy on the two front end load balancer nodes.

    Had ongoing issues with errors randomly reporting ES not running, so I've moved search back to the local servers, and updated all the boards I have access to.
