When I create instance snapshot, openstack creates new image in customers project.

Can I make any limit for this snapshots? In GB or just quantity limit?

I've found only user_storage_quota in glance glance-api.conf but it's system-wide, it can't be set per tenant.

I would be grateful for any help.

It doesn't seem that there is a per-project quota for snapshots, not more than for ephemeral storage. A snapshot is an image, and I don't see anything in the image API that limits the number or gigabytes of snapshots a user can create.

See also this blog entry and the quotas section in the Ops Guide.
