using ssh and/or nfs to send artifacts to hosts is something we should avoid so using iso/image uploader tools are not a solution.
vdsm should support uploading images using its own protocol based on the authentication between engine and vdsm, is it already?
this should be a core feature not an add-on within the current monolithic implementation, as there is no access to vdsm interaction from any of the interfaces.
