Currently there is work being done on a project for Xen called Remus. I
am not sure about KVM but Remus is still in development and although it
has been merged into the xen-unstable repository, it isn't completely
ready yet (although the developers are working very hard).

Basically it performs the first part of a live migration and if
connection is lost, it will jump the virtual machine over to the
secondary host.


It appears that Red Hat is including "high availability" for KVM in
their Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager for Servers.

Not sure if this is going to make it to CentOS, can someone
