- Debian sarge doesn't have a libc good for Xen - the "good old lib TLS
problem". Better go to Etch and use libc6-xen - for dom0 and domU.

- Google Ganeti is an interesting tool for managing mirrored systems
with drbd, and makes this easy to setup within minutes.
No heartbeat integration(yet?!), and failover is always with a little
bit of downtime, as they don't do live migration less than a minute in
my tests.
