It would be countrywide service like youtube.pl but much more
specialized thus - smaller.
NFS won't do unless i would buy extra switch for "storage" layer with
gigabit ports etc etc.

Why I ask is that I have very bad experience with GFS  and don't want
to deploy it.

Moreover I don't have any LVS servers yet but heard that it is very
efficient . Maybe I can cluster the servers connected to one storage
server with LVS without using GFS/ocfs ?

And the last question regarding LVS - is that possible to easily
migrate from one machine with normal kernel/system to two machines
stacked into lvs cluster ?
