  You have to configure the shared storage with global file system and then

The requirement for shared storage depends entirely on the application you're clustering. For example, the real servers in a web proxy cluster are completely autonomous, so no shared storage is necessary.

Red Hat replaced Piranha with Cluster Suite some time ago, as far as I can tell. I'm just wondering what the differences are between Cluster Suite and generic LVS so I can decide which route we want to take.
