openfiler(above from my original email) supports clustering in
some form I believe.

I honestly wouldn't trust any such solution myself, if I'm going
the cheap route then I would just have 2 of the systems and back
up the data to the 2nd one on a routine basis. Clustering is a
very in depth, fragile, complex thing to get right, and if not
done very very well can cause much more problems than it helps
prevent.
