Sheepdog 'does' use the technique to divide the vdi ('disk image' as
you might concern) into 4MB 'object' and use the consistency hashing
to distribute these 'object' across the cluster. So if you're running
a cluster consist of 2 nodes with 2 copies, the object will be stored
on both node. By the way, you still can access your 'vdi' from every
node within the cluster.

You may use command 'collie node info' to get the current usage of each node.
