Repository Storage11

Repository space is used when:

  • Customers create a VM instance
  • Customers upload disk images into the template repository
  • Abiquo converts instances and templates to other hypervisor formats

Abiquo accounts for space used by instances and templates (cases 1 and 2).
If you wish to account conversions, create a custom metric (case 3).
