	"centos5": 12,
	"centos6": 12


The indicated integer is a decimal representation of a 4-bit binary code, which indicates whether CPU or RAM can (1) or cannot (0) be resized without reboot, where: 

    • 1st bit defines the ability to increase cpu
    • 2nd bit defines the ability to decrease cpu
    • 3rd bit defines the ability to increase RAM
    • 4th bit defines the ability to decrease RAM

smart_server - true if a smart server can be built from this template

state – state of the template (active, inactive)

template_size-  the size of the template

updated_at — the date when the Network was updated in the [YYYY][MM][DD]T[hh][mm][ss]Z format
