Combine ZFS storage on multiple machines in to a single pool

I'm thinking about switching my storage to ZFS and am not sure what the best approach is. I have two machines full of disks and I am wondering if there is a way to combine the storage on both machines in a way that shares the CPU and memory load between them?

What I know will work is having two separate pools and using AUFS to present them as a single pool however I'm not sure if there is a better way to do this built in to zfs.

Any ideas?

How about setup a storage cluster like ceph or gluster ... etc

I think Linus setup is zfs with gluster. I think ceph is supposed to be decent but basically do your research and look at pros and cons of each and see what fits your needs the best
