Allow user to select zone when creating a new instance

Registered by Ray on 2012-10-19

The default nova scheduler AvailabilityZoneFilter allow user to select zone when creating a new instance, but currently we can only use this feature through ec2 interface.
In horizon, the parameter already contains "zone" in the method, so we can show the zones selection when creating new instance.

Whiteboard

first, we need to implement the zone-management feature -> show information of all available zones and allow crud that zones.

Submit a new blueprint for display zone information: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/horizon/+spec/show-zone-for-admin

[kspear] Hi Ray, is there a plan to start work on this soon? It looks like I'll need zone selection support by mid-June. I have existing code we've been using for cell selection (via a scheduler hint), but for Grizzly we're looking at mapping cells to availability zones.
