[Engine-devel] Instance Types Feature

Some questions:
1. Why do we need a new set of permissions for "Create Instance" and "Instance Owner"? Aren't the VmCreator role and the UserVmManager role enough in these use-cases?
2. iiuc, the internal implementation of instance types and images will be done using templates. However, I guess we plan to expose instance types and images as REST resources, right?

Thank you,

> - "software profile" called image
> This should enable to do something like: Create a new "small" VM and
