LVS would allow you to do that, you just only have to add as much servers as you want, please check https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/5727, you need to install Load balancer group by doing: # yum groupinstall "Load Balancer"
To be able to install the Load Balancing software,  an additional add-on is required to be able to access the right channel "RHEL Server Load Balancer"

After having setup the correctly channels for the hosts,  you should be able to see the additional group "Load Balancer": Load Balancer Add-on details : https://www.redhat.com/products/enterprise-linux-add-ons/load-balancing/

Best option i suggest is APACHE LOAD BALANCER configuration with session-id maintaining configuration.
