You could create a gfs based diskless shared root cluster. That means, all 
nodes are booting from the same shared storage boot device and share the same 
root device. That'll give you a filesystem based ssi and the flexibility you

To achieve the maximum flexibility, you could create one physical cluster that 
hosts different shared root devices which can be used as shared root devices 
for different "sub" - clusters (web, mail, mysql).

have a look at http://www.open-sharedroot.org
