Policies - Max number of a resource in a given period of time

Limit the amount of a given resource that can be deployed by user in a given period of time (per minute, hour, day)

In a private cloud scenario, we want to have some mechanism to handle capacity management. To achieve that, we want to avoid a huge amount of resources to be provisioned at the same time. One idea to improve this subject would be through policies, if there was an option to limit the maximum of instances (or vms, etc) in a given period of time.

Example/Use case(s):

  • A policy allowing a maximum of 5 instances within 5 minutes
