Openfiler has some great features built in for replication. For our

Yes, it's cheap (cost of hardware only). But how do you handle the
failover? Manually? Are you using NFS of iSCSI?

Openfiler has HA support built in. It uses DRDB and Heartbeat to handle replication and fail over. If you have two Openfiler boxes, you can configure them as a cluster right from their web interface -- it seems very simple, but this is not the Openfiler mailing list, so let's not loose focus :)
