Revision history [back]

Could you please elaborate on why the image needs to be that big? Is it an image-based bootable volume? Is it a snapshot of one? Or a generic image with preallocated blocks?

My point is that maybe it would be better to solve the root cause. For example, each time a user creates a snapshot of the instance, it will be uploaded back to Glance registry; an action that will probably time out along with congesting your network.
