ModularIT + SAN / NAS
Is it possible to store the virtual machines in a SAN (Fibre Channel, iSCSI, AoE, etc) and boot from there or does ModularIT require that they are stored locally?

Of course! In ModularIT, the virtualisation server is a minimal CentOS installation with Xen, so it can do everything you can do with CentOS/RedHat. As a matter of fact, if you have any shared storage technology, that would be our recommendation.
We have also successfully installed ModularIT on high available clusters. This way you install cluster services in the dom0, and run the virtual machine instances as a cluster service. You can even do this without any "real" shared storage, using DRBD to mirror volumes through a LAN connection.
