I know there are monitoring systems like Nagios, but I'm not sure how
far they go as far as failover.  In any case you shouldn't have to
implement this on your own, it has to be a solved problem by this

I'm curious what problem are you seeing (or trying to avoid)?

The standalone Continuum distribution runs in a JVM wrapper that
notices if it hangs or dies, and re-starts it automatically.
