Hello Lionel,

Production ready it's definitely yes. Red Hat even sells RHV-H, which is the 
same thing as oVirt Node. But keep in mind one thing: it's an appliance. So 
modifications on the appliance isn't really supported. As far as I know oVirt 
Node is based on imgbase and updates/security are done through yum. But when an 
update is made everything is rewritten. So you will lose your modifications if 
you install additional packages on oVirt Node.

The host is stateless, so you don't really need to backup it, the core is 
running on hosted engine.

About the other questions, I can't add anything since I'm new to oVirt too. 
Perhaps someone could complete my answer.
