What is an application template?

An application template is a "gold master" sys-prepped image of an application instance. Templates facilitate the easy and instantaneous creation of application instances; and a single template can be used to create any number of instances.

In Ignite, you can create application templates in several ways:

  • Create a new template from an existing application instance.
  • Import a VM from a .VMDK, .VHD, .VHDx, .IMG, .OVA, .QCOW2, .QED, .RAW, or .VDI, and save it as a template.
    • Note: Cleanly shut down the source VM before importing the disk file(s).
  • Download a template from the Cloudistics Application Marketplace.
