Development of a flexible image management module (!TransferManager). The new TransferManager will not make any assumption of the cluster file system. It will provide a configurable framework for:
  • Image transfer
  • Image Cloning
  • Context generation
  • Swap image creation
    Each operation will be performed by a suitable plug-in, that could be tuned for a particular setup.

Two new attributes could be defined for a DISK

   CLONE="yes|no" #The disk image will be cloned before using it
   SAVE="path_to_save_image" #Once the VM is shutdown the disk image will be saved in the specified location

Additionally the new transfer manager drivers will be able to generate on the fly swap images on the target host, so saving space and transfer times. The DISK attributes will be:

  SIZE="size in GB for swap images only"
