Re: [Xen-users] question to DRBD users/experts

I've had similar thoughts. You wouldn't need a SAN though would you? DRBD with a single primary and iSCSI target. Use HA to fail over the DRBD primary and iscsi target on failure. My only concern was how much extra load the iscsi would place on the Dom0s. Haven't got so far as testing this though.
