Do you have the NAS directly integrate with CE or is just storage and back up for VM's?

The setup looks almost like a enterprise cluster, great post. 👍

Re: 4-node SuperMicro SYS-e200-8d setup

It serves as just storage and backup.
Was hoping that AHV can mount an external NFS share and use it as storage container (like vmware nfs datastore), so that I can move powered-off VMs and templates to the external NFS storage easily.
