Asgard is on a distinguished road

The purpose of snapshots is to save some "initial" consistent state of VM.
Automatic snapshots ruled by users for many of VMs will be a headache for administrator.
For example, every new LVM snapshot adds a 100% to the original size of VM disk.
Meanwile, if a storage is damaged, the snapshot dies together with original disk. No profit.
