I replied with my phone, but didn't notice that I replied directly. For
the benefit of others:
Or change your perspective. Do you NEED to write to the VM image?
I write to fuse mounted GlusterFS volumes from within my VMs. The VM
image is just for the OS and application. With the data on a GlusterFS
volume, I get the normal fuse client performance from within my VM.
