Pierre-Luc Dion commented on CLOUDSTACK-1359:
---------------------------------------------

added this : in Create disk offering:

Disk Size: Appears only if Custom Disk Size is not selected. Define the volume size in GB
(2^30 1GB = 1,073,741,824 Bytes).

> 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).
