user template

A user template (or user-defined template) defines an arbitrary collection of capabilities, templates and rules to which you want volumes of a certain type to conform. For example, you might want all volumes that you create to store database tables to share the same reliability and performance capabilities, and also that they only be allocated from a restricted set of storage. It is useful to create user templates if you regularly create volumes with similar capabilities.
