I have never tried to see how many can be deployed off a template at once.  We typically do a couple at a time.  If you have a VAAI capable array to offload some of the I/O, you should be ok.

I don't see a maximum listed in the http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere5/r51/vsphere-51-configuration-maximums.pdf

I use the below method and normally don't do more than 2 at a time. I have seen weird issues with doing more than 8 at a time.
