I think what you're missing is sheepdog does absolutely nothing in regard to shared locking, meta data, etc.  What you're looking for is more like GFS2 or OCFS running on your shared storage.  Or Ceph's MDS capabilities, although while they claim it works, it's still not recommended for production and there are performance issues with it.

What sheepdog will do is (as of 0.9) is provide a VDI level lock for the image such that only a single machine can access that VDI at a time.  Prior to that, if you accidentally started a VM on two different hosts, the images would corrupt as you had two simultaneously operating images in the same image with no protection.

       Because we have mutiple nodes to access the same shared storage the same time,so we need a clustered filesystem to manage.

       We use fiber storage.

       To implement concurrent access to the share storage from diffrecent nodes.
