I have not yet deployed any KVM on CentOS as host OS.  However, I have
a few production KVM  guest OS installs (CentOS 5.3) deployed on
openSUSE 11.2 as host; I am running DNS/DHCP and openLDAP running on
the guests.

My KVM guests are deployed in small IT shops with 100 nodes max. where
there is no full time IT support.   So I have sort of put together my
own KVM management system (I am not using libvirtd and associated tool
set).  The guest KVMs are started/shutdown during host OS system
boot/shutdwon via my own /etc/init.d/kvminit script.

So far no issues with service availability.
