One of my first experiments using the Ruby fog library. ManageIQ or CloudForms can currently not create snapshots for OpenStack instances.

With a custom button and a method available on Github, you can easily add this functionality. The snapshot name and snapshot ID will be stored in custom attributes of the instance, so they show up in the Web UI (after a reload).
