I have the free version of ESXi 3.5 I think it is. Is this the same thing you're talking about?
 From what I've read, it looks like the only way of clustering or having fail over is using win as the VM servers which is why I started wondering about GFS.

I wish I would have a little hands on with XEN, maybe it's an option before I get too deep into VMware.
