That's ok, I was thinking from a user perspective;

- Sheepdog is "similar" to LVM on hypervisor
- Gluster is raw file in NAS

So if I understand right, it is like choosing from LVM/rawfile but with
a redundant-scalable backend.

What system would be better, for speed, ease of administration, ...? Is
it the same as choosing LVM or rawfile, or are there other things to
take into account?
