Note that this won't provide you with redundancy, only horizontal

If what you are looking for is a 'hot spare' sort of situation, where only
one Cyrus server is getting requests at any time, you may be able to make
do with a distributed filesystem, provided locking semantics are preserved
for atleast the local host (and you're willing to pay the distributed
filesystem performance penalty).

In general, Cyrus over NFS is a bad idea.
