Provisioning compute resources
Multitenant compute resources, such as vCPUs, RAM, storage, floating IPs, load balances and Kubernetes clusters, can be provisioned to end users in the self-service panel. Additionally, you can install the billing metering service to collect usage data of compute resources in different projects.
- Compute storage space is not fully thin provisioned. After user data removal, unused storage space is not reclaimed and is reported as actual used space, which is charged according to your licensing model. For more details, refer to Logical space chart.
- A clear understanding of the compute cluster, which is explained in About the compute cluster.
- Your hardware meets the requirements listed in Compute cluster requirements.
- Your infrastructure networks are set up, as described in Setting up networks for the compute cluster.
- The storage cluster is created by following the instructions in Deploying the storage cluster.
- Create the compute cluster. After the cluster is created, you can manage compute objects in the admin panel (refer to Managing the compute cluster).
- Set the same CPU model to all of the compute nodes.
- Create domains, projects, and users.
- Provide access to the self-service panel. After the panel is configured, you can log in there as a self-service user and start managing compute objects (refer to the Self-Service Guide).
- If you want to provision Kubernetes as a Service, set a DNS name for the compute API and install the Kubernetes service.
- If you want to provision Load Balancer as a Service, install the load balancer service.
- If you want to provision billing metering, install the billing metering service.
