[Gluster-users] GlusterFS as virtual machine storage

Hi all,
I would like to ask if, and with how much success, you are using 
GlusterFS for virtual machine storage.

My plan: I want to setup a 2-node cluster, where VM runs on the nodes 
themselves and can be live-migrated on demand.

I have some questions:
- do you use GlusterFS for similar setup?
- if so, how do you feel about it?
- if a node crashes/reboots, how the system re-syncs? Will the VM files 
be fully resynchronized, or the live node keeps some sort of write 
bitmap to resynchronize changed/written chunks only? (note: I know about 
sharding, but I would like to avoid it);
- finally, how much stable is the system?
