    Shared Volume


    Hello everyone

    Is it possible to have a shared volume between multiple Linux machines?

    Here is what I am trying to do. I have 5 Linux machines hooked up to a SAN.
    I have 500Gigs of disk that I want to share between all five machines.
    Each of the machines has a physical fiber connection to the drives.
    I want the 5 machines to be able to see and access the same data on that
    drive.
    I want be able to increase the size of the drive as needed (I have
    currently configured it as an lvm and it is compromised of 2 "virtual"
    drives of 250Gigs each).

    Is this possible without buying additional software??

    I could go with a cluster, but I want to see if I can do it individualy
    (so I can run different versions of Linux).

    any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks
