NFS for users data, but all the login data i want to be synced across
the servers. I want users to be able to it themselves

LDAP is overly complicated, overly suckly, and less reliable than
using the native login tools of our linux systems.

recently i have been experimenting with using json over ruby compiled
on Node.JS as our login manajer though /s
