I'm wrestling with possible configurations for a 2-node, high 
availability cluster.

What I seem to be zeroing in on is:
- using Xen to provide several virtual servers on each box
- using md to raid together the disks on each server
- using DRBD to mirror the primary machine to the backup server
- using EVMS to manage partitions and such
- maybe using SSI to provide a single interface to the world for each 
pair of virtual servers

Anybody have any experience with this kind of setup? Any suggestions, 
pointers to recipes, etc.?

Thanks much,

Miles Fidelman
