Something like a Global File System?

http://www.redhat.com/software/rha/gfs/

(I believe some other company did develop it some time in the past;
hmm, probably the guys doing LVM stuff?).

Anyway the idea is that two machines have same filesystem mounted and
they share it. The locking I believe is handled by communication
between computers using "host to host" SCSI commands.

I never used it, I've only heard about it from a friend who used to
work with it in CERN.
