For more information, there are 3 kinds of snapshots that SD supports,
basically in 2 category:

 1 vdi snapshot
   a. snapshot with VM state + disk state (savevm from QEMU monitor)
   b. disk state only (qemu-img snapshot or collie vdi snapshot)

 2 cluster snapshot
   This backup all the read-only objects (as known as snapshot objects)
in the cluster (collie cluster snapshot)

VDI snapshot function has been done and stale to use. Just cluster
snapshot is work in progress.
