[Xen-users] storage recommendation

Hi all,

I know that there are many ways to provide storage to a dom-u.
Currently I give all my clients four disks:
1: one just containing /boot
2: one containing an lvm with / and most of the other mountpoints
3: one containing swap
4: one containing data (server)
Home directories are obtained through nfs

Is there any rule-of-thumb, or general best practice to get the best 
At home I use simple files on the dom-0 machine,
But how well does it perform compared with aoe, iscsi, nfs?

I presume that the weakest link will remain the spot where the actual storage 
takes place.
Best will be something like a 10Gb-SAN, but that is not available for many ;-)
