The OP was talking about files. I suggested a network raid 1 type
setup with DRBD but forgot that that would not work unless you
combined that with GFS or OCFS2. I had thought about the rsync (or
even unison) solution but it depends on how much time can elapse
between the file changing on one server and that change appearing on
the others.
