I think we could manage this with qemu block replication.

Live local storage migration is coming, and it's including the mirror through remote node.
So I think it should be too difficult to handle continuous replication of qemu block driver.
Maybe the only problem is that is not possible to run other qemu jobs (backups for example), at the same time.

Hi, 

I just set up a two-node cluster with Proxmox using DRBD9 for live 
migration. 

Does that mean that I should switch technology as long as we're not 
using that cluster for production? It would be pretty sad when DRBD gets 
removed from Proxmox once I get to use it. 

I think it's already hard to find solutions for high-availability(ish) 
clusters for those poor souls with with only two physical machines. Any 
hint in a better direction would of course be appreciated! 

Thanks! 

Valentin
