A small request, can we enhance this feature so that it will generate 
multiple templates with different storage?
For example now when I add a Linux template it has to be in different 
sizes: 10GB, 20GB, 40GB, 100GB, 200GB etc. Another round of templates 
for say Windows, another for eg Linux+CPanel and so on and so forth. I 
end up adding tons of templates (really one of my biggest pet peeves 
with ACS) whereas with the same setup in openstack or onapp I just need 
to add 3.
