I don't know much of ScaleIO, but at least since Liberty release it can be
configured as a cinder backend driver in Openstack

So the more "natural" way that comes to mind is to interface oVirt with
cinder and configure ScaleIO in cinder in similar way as with Ceph backend

But this implies configuring Openstack too and also I don't know how the
security part (see ceph authentication in above link), if present in
ScaleIO, could be managed

HIH searching a solution
