Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Limit Resources to domain/account
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 19:54:23 GMT
I believe the idea is that CPU cores are treated like compute units, and speed is simply a
value the admin set based on availability and cost model.  However the fact that you can create
many different compute units, lets you leverage a more granular pricing model. CloudStack
already factors into its thresholds the total value in GHZ, so speed is currently a consideration
for capacity planning (the only consideration [units x GHZ]).

Could you maybe flesh out what you're thinking into a bit more detail?

Thanks.
