Provider

Use the provider policy to exclude any provider who is not suitable for use in an environment or for a particular workload. 

Region

 Use the tree structure to find the regions most suitable for your solution.

Tips:

  • (TBC) Future offerings from providers you have included in your provider policy will be automatically included if you  select a country or region.   You can exclude them by selecting a specific leaf.

Sizing

Control CPU, Memory and Disk ratios using a simple percentage slider. 

Maximum lease duration

This policy allows you to choose the maximum number of days a deployment can be used for.

Levels Policies where can be applied

Global 

Global Policies apply to every workload in every environment.  This is the highest level policy and will override anything set at a lower level.

Environment 

Environmental Policies control workloads in the specific environment.  Policies set here will override policies set at a Catalog level. 

Catalog

Catalog level policies apply to a specific workload in a specific environment.  The effective policy will always be within the global and environmental policies that have been set.
