3.3. Creating an Appliance with the Agent for Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure

To create an appliance with the Agent for Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure from a QCOW2 template, do the following:

  1. Log in to your Cyber Protection account.

  2. Click Devices > All devices > Add > Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure. The ZIP archive will be downloaded to your machine. Unpack it to get the QCOW2 template.

  3. Log in to your Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure account.

  4. Add the QCOW2 image file to the Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure compute cluster:

    1. On the Compute > Virtual machines > Images tab, click Add image.

    2. In the Add image window, click Browse, and then select the QCOW2 file.

    3. Specify the image name, select the Generic Linux OS type, and then click Add.

  5. In the Compute > Virtual machines > Virtual machines tab, click Create virtual machine.


    A window will open where you will need to specify a name for the new virtual machine.

  6. In Deploy from, choose Image.

  7. In the Images window, select the QCOW2 image file of the appliance, and then click Done.

  8. In the Volumes window, do not add any volumes. The volume that is added automatically for the system disk is sufficient.

  9. In the Flavor window, choose a desired combination of vCPUs and RAM, and then click Done. See the agent system requirements in Deploying the Agent for Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure from a QCOW2 Template.

  10. In the Network interfaces window, click Add, select a public virtual network, and then click Add. It will appear in the Network interfaces list.

    If you use a setup with more than one physical network (and thus with more than one public virtual network), repeat this step and select the virtual networks that you need.

  11. Click Done.

  12. Back in the Create virtual machine window, click Deploy to create and boot the virtual machine.
