In the case of a cluster, live migration is possible with a shared storage.

In the case of servers that are not in a cluster, it is not possible to 
live migration of VM. It should be copied the VM by rsync, ssh or ftp 
between servers. In the case of a raw disk on logical volume, use kpartx 
to mount the partition.

But in the case of a cluster without shared storage, I do not see how to 
migrate the VM. In the cluster there is only storage that is accessible 
from the master, the nodes do not have storage for a migration, logical 
volumes of the nodes are not accessible.

Do I have summarized the possibilities?
