Get a grip on the next-gen Oracle Cluster File System, an alternative to GFS.

Traditionally in Linux, if you wanted to access a file system from more than one machine you would mount it on one machine, and then export it to the others via NFS, CIFS or something similar. This is a stable, mature and well documented procedure, but it does have its downsides. Performance is not great, there can be locking issues, there are potential security implications and worst of all you have a single point of failure.
