Hi Giovanni,

We simply keep a backup copies of the VM configuration files in 
/etc/qemu-server on all our machines. Then, if one of the hosts fails, 
we put our backed up configuration fiels in /etc/qemu-server on the 
remaining host and start up all the VMs. Simples!

I can share the rsync script if you want...
