Maybe you're right that GFS would be overkill -- I know you have to 
setup the whole clustering environment before it will work. Even though 
NFS would be easy to setup, it seems like it would just add more servers 
into the mix. We really want to achieve automatic failover at all levels 
and setting up NFS to replicate in real time and run the extra servers 
for that seems like it would require more resources. I'd rather put the 
time into understanding the complexities of the clustering environment 
setup and management and save some server sprawl

I'll look into OCFS2 and gluster to see if those are good options. 
Thanks for those suggestions.
