Sorry, JM forgive my ignorance, but it simply does not match up what you say.
First you say:

"In general, I don't recommend any distributed filesystems for VM images, but
I can also see that this is the wave of the future. "

Which means you do not believe at all in one major goal of this fs. Hu?
And then:

"I am sorry that you haven't been able to deploy glusterfs in production.
Discussing how and why glusterfs works - or doesn't work - for particular use
cases is welcome on this list. Starting off a discussion about how the entire
approach is unworkable is kind of counter-productive and not exactly helpful
to those of us who just want to use the thing."

Now how can you expect a "productive" input to a question where you yourself
do not believe in an answer being possible at all.
I mean, you expect it to fail anyway but nevertheless want people to spend
their time? Most of us are _not_ paid for debugging glusterfs. Are you
paid for it? And you do not believe in the project anyway (you said so above)?
I am astonished ...
