i use rsync to make partial data backup .. ie: /etc, /usr/local/etc,
/usr/home, /var/logs ...

there is a project named 'hast'[1] for a clustered filesystem .. it's
being developed by pawel .. the project has some completed milestones,
so you can get it from fbsd src svn tree .. hast can do clustered
filesystem right now but it's not complete, so there is no stable yet

other way is gmirror[2] + ggated .. with that you can get a raid1 over
net solution .. but i think it's not prepared to be used as
master-master soluction
