During Gluster Summit, we discussed gluster volumes as storage for VM
images - feedback on the usecase and upcoming features that may benefit
Some of the points discussed
* Need to ensure there are no issues when expanding a gluster volume when
sharding is turned on.
* Throttling feature for self-heal, rebalance process could be useful for
* Erasure coded volumes with sharding - seen as a good fit for VM disk
* Performance related
** accessing qemu images using gfapi driver does not perform as well as
fuse access. Need to understand why.
** Using zfs with cache or lvmcache for xfs filesystem is seen to improve
If you have any further inputs on this topic, please add to thread.
