Which works very well indeed in many situations.
Someone else has already mentioned distributed filesystems line AFS --
another thing to contemplate is the new HAST capability in FreeBSD:
It's conceptually similar to Linux DRBD, which in theory you can use
under FreeBSD as well, but no idea how it performs.
