Scalable storage for QEMU/KVM

While reading up on various scalable file systems I came across the sheepdog project. For those new to sheepdog, their website describes it as:

“Sheepdog is a distributed storage system for QEMU/KVM. It provides highly available block level storage volumes that can be attached to QEMU/KVM virtual machines. Sheepdog scales to several hundreds nodes, and supports advanced volume management features such as snapshot, cloning, and thin provisioning.”

This looks really cool, and I’m hoping to play around with it this weekend. Curious what experiences my readers have had with it?
