  8. Option to launch VMs without persistent boot volume

    In some cases we don't need persistent storage for the boot disk, i.e. writes don't have to replicated outside the VM. For VMs that are disposable, we don't ever need to do a backup of the VM main boot disk. It should allow faster data writes and reduce network bandwidth usage.

  11. Keep consistent naming on VM's NAT resources.

    Some VMs go up with "external-nat", others with "External NAT", making scripting a living hell and causing problems with VM cicling in a single static IP.

    Update: the UI for this feature is currently under development, and should be released in the near future. Our deployment process makes an exact prediction difficult, but I wanted to provide an update on this since it has been a while.
