Perhaps I'm being overly simplistic, but in this scenario, what would prevent

having each node NFS-mount /exports/nodes from the server? Much simplier than
your example, and all data is available on all machines/nodes.

This solution would limit bandwidth to that available from that single server. With the cluster approach, the objective is for each machine in the cluster to primarily access files which are stored locally. Whole files could be moved as necessary.
