QCOW2 or RAW image disk files
storing the files in qcow2,raw,vmdk file format would be really good and beneficial for our operations, than we can use NFS or Local storages for VS disks..
I would highly recommend to implement qcow2 , libvirt already has many functions that can be used with qcow2, like taking snapshots and reverting back to snapshots.. taking backups from snapshots.. Onapp api can also use this functionalities..
Thank you for sharing the idea and a use case with us. We appreciate that much. I see benefits of storing vdisks as files on a remote or local filesystem.
Do you have any other requirements or recommendations besides having an option to select a disk format like qcow2, raw or vmdk?
