Using Lyve Cloud Compute

Compute console overview

The Zadara console enables you to create, configure, run, access and manage Virtual Machines (VMs). Select zCompute to open the Compute Project Overview page.

The following menu options of the left navigation pane include:

  • Overview: This page summarizes key resource usage statics of VM instances and has various widgets and graphs.

  • Instances: An instance is a virtual machine that is hosted on Zadara.

  • Snapshots: You can create a snapshot of a specific volume or an instance that includes a boot volume and multiple data volumes.

  • Key Pairs: A key pair consists of a public and private key. These are a set of security credentials used to prove your identity when connecting to a zCompute instance.

  • Auto Scaling Groups: An Auto Scaling group contains a collection of zCompute instances treated as a logical grouping for automatic scaling and management. An Auto Scaling group lets you use zCompute Auto Scaling features such as health check replacements and scaling policies.

  • Launch Config: A launch configuration is an instance configuration template that an Auto Scaling group uses to launch zCompute instances.

  • Rules: Determine the VM instances' placement on physical nodes.

You can perform various actions using the Compute console from the menu options. For more information, see zCompute Project Overview.

How to use the Compute platform?

This video explains how to use the Compute console.

Operating Compute

Procedure. To operate Compute:
  1. Create a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). For more information, see Create Your Own Virtual Private Cloud.

  2. To associate a Subnet with VPC, configure Sub-nets within the VPC. For more information, see Creating Subnet.

  3. Create a firewall by creating a security group so that whitelists are applied to the virtual network interfaces to control the inbound and outbound traffic. For more information, see Security Group.

  4. Add an internet gateway to the routing table. For more information, see Internet Gateways.

    First, create a routing table that controls the IP forwarding of all traffic in the subnet. For more information, see the Routing tables.

  5. Create a key pair for remote connection. For more information, see Key Pairs.

  6. Create a VM instance to launch, and attach an elastic IP address. For more information, see Creating VM Instances.
