Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 15:16:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-491?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13594769#comment-13594769

Francois Gaudreault commented on CLOUDSTACK-491:
------------------------------------------------

We would be interested in that feature too :)

Especially when hypervisors (e.g XenServer, VMWare) supports that upfront with their APIs.

> In some cases the template process can be exhaustive and wasteful.  Templates make sense
for large scale  deployments of a common image but sometimes there is a need to make one or
two clones of a system.  The process of creating a template, offloading to secondary storage,
then loading it _back_ onto primary only to make one or two copies of an instance seems unnecessary
if there was simply an ability clone either directly on primary storage using a writable snapshot
feature or offloading to secondary storage temporarily then removing the data once the copy
has been made (similar to how volumes are imported).
