This is thin provisioned on disk, not dedicated. So you could give each VM
100GB, but if you only put a 1MB file in there, it will only take up 1MB
(+ the filesystem metadata overhead) on disk.

I'm partial to small, medium, large approach to templates. The large one
has everything, but never gets a network connection. I wouldn't recommend
HVMs for what you are doing; you lose non-persistence of the root
