About Virtual Clouds

Within CloudCreator all your subscribed services and the resources within them are located in Virtual Clouds.

 

Virtual clouds allow you to view and manage:

  • the services you are subscribed to (e.g. PAYG, Vault, IaaS), and
  • the resources within (e.g. virtual machines, networks, backups, storage, etc).

 

Many customers use just a single virtual cloud for simplicity. Some customers choose to organise their business using multiple virtual clouds. For example:

  • A reseller managing their clients will set up each individual client company as a separate virtual cloud.
  • A large organisation might use virtual clouds to manage sub-groups, departments or branches. Alternatively, they might use Resource Categorisation to manage sub-groups, departments or branches.

 

The key benefits of using multiple virtual clouds are:

 

The virtual clouds you can view, and the actions you can perform, are controlled by your role. See Roles and Permissions for more information.

Parent and Child Virtual Clouds
All your subscribed services and the resources within them are located in Parent or Child virtual clouds. You can access your virtual cloud(s) from any screen in CloudCreator by clicking the cloud icon in the side menu.

 

The type of virtual cloud you can view and the actions you can perform are controlled by your CloudCreator role. See Roles and Permissions for more information.

 

The way that Parent and Child clouds can be used is described below. 

 

Virtual Cloud Type

How to Use It

Parent cloud = default cloud

For larger client environments, use a parent cloud to manage smaller cloud(s) underneath.

 

Examples:  

  • A reseller who needs to manage individual client company clouds.
  • A large organisation who needs to manage its sub-groups, departments or branches underneath.
Child cloud = specific cloud

For sub-organisation or other partitioning needs, use child clouds.


Example: A Logistics Cloud, sitting under the Parent Cloud of a national organisation. Other child clouds might be a Retail Cloud and a Finance Cloud.
