you might want to think about run a Red Hat Cluster Suite cluster,
since it's been ported to CentOS. read the readme here:
be aware that while i believe that this system would satisfy your
needs (based on the information you've provided), setting up CS/GFS
is a nontrivial task. read all the docs and be sure you understand
what you're doing; if not, ask.
1) you *need* shared storage. use a fibre channel or iSCSI SAN, or
use an external disk chassis with a scsi controller for each host.
2) you *need* some automatic means of fencing (i.e. power-cycling)
the hosts in the cluster. a network-controlled power switch will do
this well; if you don't want to buy one, some servers have remote
management ports that will permit fencing.
If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
