Clustered LVM On DRBD Backed By RAID Level 1 Storage

Below is an ASCII drawing which should help you see how DRBD will tie in to the rest of the cluster's storage. This map assumes a simple RAID level 1 array underlying each node. If your node has a single hard drive, simply collapse the first two layers into one. Similarly, if your underlying storage is a more complex RAID array, simply expand the number of physical devices at the top level.
