What approach do you guys suggest to have both fault tolerance and scalability as our load increases ..

No, adding slaves creates redundancy but doesn't increase capacity. If anything, it will decrease capacity (in terms of being able to mod data through the cluster) due to the added overhead. Mirroring is a fault tolerance feature, not a load/capacity increasing one.
