"You may need to have information replicated between two computers that actually are part of a cluster, in addition to"software" replica mechanisms such as Rsync you can use a product that is stable and included in the standard kernel: DRBD.

"DRBD (Distributed Replicated Block Device) is a distributed storage system for the GNU/Linux platform. It consists of a kernel module, several userspace management applications and some shell scripts and is normally used on high availability (HA) clusters. DRBD bears similarities to RAID 1, except that it runs over a network."
