  Obviously, I agree with Grant. I think SAN and Xen are two pieces of the 
whole puzzle.
Xen can reduce or remove your service availability's tie to a particular CPU, 
but by
itself cannot remove the tie to a particular piece of storage. SAN seems to the 
be the
best way to achieve that goal and achieve the reliability goal. Obviously most 
people are
concerned with money, space and resource limitations, so the choice of iSCSI 
versus AoE is
a big deal in getting the best bang for your infrastructure investment.
