+Bypassing Secondary Storage on KVM templates
+CloudStack provides an optional way to register and use templates on KVM.
+Instead of registering a template and use secondary storage as cache, it is possible to bypass
secondary storage on KVM templates registration. At deployment time, the template is downloaded
directly to primary storage avoiding the copy from secondary storage.
+Supported protocols: HTTP/HTTPS, NFS and metalinks. The protocol is obtained from the template
+To enable this option for a template:
+#. In the left navigation bar, click Templates.
+#. Click Register Template.
+#. Select KVM as hypervisor:
+   |kvm-direct-download.png|
+   -  **Direct Download**. It will be shown in the UI when KVM is selected as hypervisor.
Choose Yes for enabling the bypassing secondary storage option.
+   -  **Checksum**. Optional field. If this field is populated, the checksum is compared
to the downloaded template checksum when the template is downloaded to primary storage at
deployment time.
+After the template is registered, it is automatically available for VM deployments.
