volume template

A volume template (or template for short) is a meaningful collection of rules that provide a capability. A template can specify one or more capabilities that a volume created using the template may have, and consists of a collection of storage selection and layout rules. For example, a template may allow you to create a volume that is able to tolerate the failure of a certain number of controllers, or that has a certain number of copies of the volume data.
