Recommend hardware profiles

To guide users to the most effective hardware profile for each template, select the recommended hardware profiles.

Abiquo uses information provided by AWS to predefine the recommended profiles for AWS templates (see http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/instance-type-matrix/). These values can then be edited.

When a user deploys a virtual machine they can select from the dropdown list of hardware profiles that will highlight recommended profiles with “(recommended)”.
