In product's detail page the storefront user must initially select the desired "REGION". The "Region" drop down list is a label corresponding to Order Characteristic "VMM Management Server" that lets the user select the preferable VMM Management Server.

These are pre-defined by the WAP administrator and are loaded from the VMM server and according to the user's Region selection. 

Every time a user selects a hardware profile the corresponding section with quotas and the section "Your Total" is displayed. 

The user can select the desired template from the corresponding drop down list (templates are also predefined by the WAP administrator), the quantitiy and extra storage.  At the "Your Total" Section, all quotas are being gathered (including extra storage) and the price is calculated based on the excel pricing that the administrator has already loaded at bss. 

The user can select as many hardware profiles as he wants, and he can select the desired template of each profile. The resources of each profile will be added at the "Your Total" section and one total estimated price will appear. 

At the extra storage section, the user can type the desired extra storage for all profiles and later on, he can allocate the resources to the VMs as he wants.
