[CentOS-virt] Slightly OT: Centos KVM Host/Guest functions and LVM considerations

I've been considering this type of setup for a distributed
virtualization setup. I have several small locations and we would be
more comfortable having a host in each.
I was nervous about running the firewall as a virtual machine, though
if nobody screams bloody murder, I'll start exploring it further as it
could reduce machine count at each location by 2 (backup fw).
I'm not as paranoid about the host providing storage to the VM's
directly, for booting.
I'm considering using DRBD to replicate storage on 2 identical hosts
to allow fail-over in the case of a host hardware failure.
What kind of VM management tool do you use; VMM or something else?
