Making SAN partition available from multiple servers


How do I make a SAN partition accessible from 2 servers. Both server should be able read and write to the SAN partition.

As per my googling a cluster file system like (GFS, OCFS, VxFS) can make the SAN partition is accessible from both servers. Is it a feasible and stable soltion?

Is there any other way to accomplish this setup. I understand that NAS would be a better soltion in this case, but our client mendates SAN usage for the setup. Rackspace support suggested using an Interface server. While the soution is feasible, interface server is potential bottleneck and undermines the pupose of having 2 redundant servers.

Please let me know if you have any solution for me.
