Putting WebSphere server in cluster

We are going to run WebSphere on Linux for some new applications and would like to put the WebSphere server in cluster. I know that WebSphere Network Development has clustering capabilities, but in our case, WebSphere Express would probably be enough. Do you see any problem in using an OS-level cluster system?

One customer we worked with compared WebSphere clustering to using a simple Apache HTTP server that spread the workload across multiple systems and WebSphere instances. Since their applications already had transaction integrity built-in, there wasn't any reason to use WebSphere clustering. Performance was at least as good as the WebSphere cluster.
