If you want to do this, IMHO the only possible way is by using dedicated
hardware clustering, supported by the OS. Certainly that won't cause
data corruption problems: That's what it's all about. You have in effect
a single server, there is no master and no slave, you will pay "an awful
lot" for the necessarily extremely high data transfer rate between
server units and *disk array* (since nobody in his/her right mind would
attempt this on a single disk, for a cluster).

Those who seek to reinvent the wheel must also expect the rough ride
they're going to get, until they've discovered the perfection that
rotundity confers.
