yes, on windows it's a virtual SCSI disk device.
Thanks for the info, I didn't know vdfuse. However, we don't like to use FUSE, so we did the virtual disk driver on linux from kernel level.

There is already such a utility for Linux  known as "vdfuse": (but I
have not tried it, and it is not part of VirtualBox)
