Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-491) Instance Cloning
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 18:50:12 GMT
Clayton Weise created CLOUDSTACK-491:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Instance Cloning
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-491
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-491
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Template
            Reporter: Clayton Weise
            Priority: Minor


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).
