MapR-FS mounted as a storage for Virtual Machine

Hi guys, we have a certain use case about Virtual Machines. Technically MapR-FS can be mounted on a single machine as a storage (Using NFS) and I think that this also can be made mounted Virtual Machine. 


Here is the set-up,


1 Server (Will run 5 VM's)

1 MapR Cluster (3 nodes)


The plan is to lessen up the cost on hardware (Technically storage) so we are setting up a separate server (Filled with VM's) for applications and lessen up the primary hard drive and replace them with MapR-FS.


Is this possible? I know it is possible but is there any steps on doing these? 

We really need this project and plan it immediately.


Also will each vm application benefit on read/write speed using MapR-FS as a storage?


Any reply is much appreciated thanks.
