So you can just rebundle it right before you shutdown (or snapshot it, a feature that should come soon). Also FYI, if the host crashes and comes back up, your instance is not lost. A simple reboot instances command will cause it to restart again.

Tim Bordemann is still having a problem: Thanks for your answer. Maybe I didn't make it clear enough, but actually I don't want to rebundle a VM / an image everytime I install or change something inside of it. Opennebula f.e. offers me to create an image and define it as being "persistent". When I shutdown the VM all the changes are being copied back to the imagestore. Later I can start the same VM again and have the exact same state as after the shutdown.
