Subject Re: Fast access to specific templates vs. secondary storage

Hi Peter,

initial template copy process from Secondary to Primary storage pool should
be decently fast, since you are doing sequential IO read from Secondary NFS
and doing sequential IO write to Primary Storage - that should be very fast
in general.

No way around this process at the moment.

Best,
Andrija
