For a stable deployable, yet flexible solution, what VBD types do people
here reommend.

I know from the Documentation (and common-sense) that file-backed vbd's
will die for I/O intensive activities, so I'm leaning towards LVM as a
solution.

One thing that has caught my eye is the snapshot ability for a logical
volume, but after a little more research and dipping into the archives
I've heard nightmare stories with using snapshots with Xen. Is this
still the case.

Am I just better off simply installing domains as I need them? Thanks.
