depends on how much of your own effort you want to put in getting this 
running - it might be that Xen Enterprise is something that would 
benefit you more. It can be done with other tools but if you want VM's 
to magically start working over >> there when the host here << dies then 
i think you need to look at a commercial product. I dont like Xen 
Enterprise and never will but if you want to use Xen then you may have 
to go that route. You could make it so that disk images are on shred 
storage and so recovery to a different dom0 is short but if you want 
seamless then i think you'll have to pay $$
