Clustering is one of those terms which maybe a bit over-used in computing.

OpenMosix is not a tool that will supply HA, it is a load sharing system.

If an OpenMosix node dies then data is lost, plain & simple.  Infact right
now a process running under OM is susceptible to loss of the original node
_or_ the node the data moves too.
