"""Possible vm modes for instances.
Compute instance vm modes represent the host/guest ABI used for the
virtual machine / container. Individual hypervisors may support
multiple different vm modes per host. Available vm modes for a hypervisor
driver may also vary according to the architecture it is running on.
The 'vm_mode' parameter can be set against an instance to
choose what sort of VM to boot.
