To answer your questions, these nodes are paravirtualized under the Xen
hypervisor.  The physical volumes are kept on a central storage server
(commercial SAN appliance), organized into a clustered volume group by
CLVM.

Out of that volume group we have 30+ logical volumes, each of which are
simple filesystem images, mounted as the root filesystem on one of the
virtual hosts.
