Has anyone used or found a HOWTO on how to use Xen with Gluster? I'm working on a testbed of two servers, possibly three, that will be syncing a volume via IP and I'd like to work on finding a way to do live migration of the VM between (among) the servers but I don't see any howtos for setting that up or managing it.

I know a couple people who run DRDB. What that does is mirror each fs operation. Then move the IPs with heartbeat around and you got migration. Not sure if it's as robust as ESX' hot migration.
