Extra check before deleting important instances

Extra check before deleting important instances

PureApplication has the ability to deploy a full blown complex environment across PureApplication Systems.
Before deleting an instance the PureApplication user is prompted for a dialog to 'Delete' or 'Cancel' the operation.
However our experience is that the lifecycle can be either very fast (especially for development environments) or stable for several months to years (especially for production environments) on the same rack.
The prompted message does not distinguish between this sort of environments.
Over time an PureApplication user is able to accidentally delete a whole environment, for example a DB2-HADR environment across racks, regardless of the prompted message.
