We use Linux-ha (http://linux-ha.org) and drbd instead of a shared
disk. It plays nicely with Xen. In one instance, we've got two Xen
servers, each housing 4 virtual servers in separate clusters, all
sharing data with drbd. It works very well. We're also using CentOS,
so none of the software used costs anything.
