Joe Brockmeier closed CLOUDSTACK-1359.
--------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

This seems pedantic to me. If someone else wants to tackle this, feel free.

> On the example page above, the disksize field lists that that it is in GB.  For some
people GB means 10 raised to the 9th power (1,000,000,000) bytes while for others it means
2 raised to the 30th power (1,073,741,824) bytes.
> Check out Wiki here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte.
> I recommend we clarify documents to indicate we are talking about a GB being equal to
1,073,741,824 bytes (which is often known as a GiB).
