AWS On-Demand Provisioning

In Development
With this feature, when creating a machine catalog, VMs are not provisioned at catalog creation time, but rather the first time VMs are powered on. For non-persistent catalogs, the OS disk is deleted when the VM power state is set to Off, and recreated when the VM is powered up. The AWS on-demand provisioning feature reduces your storage costs and provides faster catalog creation.
