Description

EC2 instances can have a block device mapping to EBS volumes, as per http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/block-device-mapping-concepts.html
We should be able to design this block device mapping in Foreman and set ephemeral disks for the EC2 instances too.

It will easily get done after #4521 is closed, for the moment I'm focusing on that and waiting for a test EC2 account

Is this feature dead? Based on associated bugs/tickets it looks like fog might have introduced new capabilities to support more customization around boot volumes size/types. We just attempted to hook up 1.20 foreman to AWS and found this to be show stopping.

Sadly it seems so yes, it's been two years since I sent an empiric patch to raise default size here: https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/3022 and nothing has been done since.
I looked already a bit into integrating up to the creation form but ruby syntax is ways too "weird" and I don't think I'm going to make it...
