Enable only recommended HPsMark this checkbox to allow the user to work with recommended hardware profiles only. When creating a VM, the user will only be able to select from the recommended hardware profiles.
Hardware profilesSelect the hardware profiles that you wish to recommend for your users from the hardware profiles available in the public cloud provider and loaded into your system. See Hardware profiles. For AWS, Abiquo uses information provided by AWS to predefine the recommended profiles for templates (see http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/instance-type-matrix/). You can then edit these values for each template. When a user deploys a VM they can select from the dropdown list of hardware profiles that will highlight recommended profiles with “(recommended)”.
