I suggest you setup that environment and test for the performance and report if you have issues. Please note that currently there is no data locality guarantee, so a VM might be running on a host that doesn't have its disks.
We have APIs to do backup\restore and that is the only supported option for backup: https://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/storage/backup-restore-api-integration/ You can look at the Gluster DR option that was posted a while back, you can look that up. It used geo replication and import storage domain to do the DR.
