Are you using lxd or lxc?
The easiest way is probably to just bind mount the fast directory onto
/var/lib/lxc or /var/lib/lxd. If I'm understanding you right.
Personally on my laptop I have a little 16G m.2 ssd formatted as btrfs
and mounted onto /var/lib/lxd to give me something like .5-second container
