it can, if those other computers share their drives.

you can run an iSCSI target, NBD server, or vblade on each machine;
then join'em all with cLVM.  not for the faint of heart, though, and
redundancy isn't easy either.

DRBD is a slightly different configuration where you definitely get
some failure protection; but it's typically limited to just 2 nodes.
if you need more than that, you end layering both solutions.  again,
totally doable; but you have to design the solution yourself.
