I'm still deciding on storage solutions and have not made up my mind yet. GlusterFS may be an option but I'm not sure about performance and maintenance. It sounds to me like GlusterFS with secondary replicated gluster volume would work quite well as a disaster recovery solution but I'd also need

If you are using NFS, you might find it easier and more efficient to use a solution outside oVirt. I've documented an initial attempt at backing up machine images with backy2 at https://dyasny.blogspot.ca/2017/06/exploring-backup-options-for-rhvovirt.html It is harder to do with block storage

I've been running a non-production oVirt setup for a while and plan on building a more robust oVirt setup for eventual production use. Part of that planning of course is backup/disaster recovery options. I've been playing around with a few options to backup oVirt, I'm sure most of you are aware
