Did you read the GFS whitepaper? It really works differently from other
filesystems with regard to latency and consistency. You'll probably have
better success with Lustre (http://www.clusterfs.com/) or RedHat's Global
File System (http://www.redhat.com/software/rha/gfs/).
If you're looking for a 'cheap, free and easy' solution you can just as
well stop right now. :-)
