They look good to me, except I would go with a smaller chunksize, but 
like Kevin, I don't have 10G ethernet or SSD bricks  (Jellus). You do 
get slightly better write performance with the larger shard sizes.

One question - how do you plan to convert the VM's?

- setup a new volume and copy the VM images to that?

- or change the shard setting inplace? (I don't think that would work)
