  • If you do not have a HP cloud cloud account, you must sign-up and create an account before you can complete this tutorial.
  • In order to add HP cloud, you must be an 'admin' user of the RightScale account.
  • Currently, only AZ1 is supported for HP. You must enable the AZ1 zone and use that to register to RightScale.


Connect to Cloud

After logging into the Dashboard, go to Settings > Account Settings > Clouds.  Click Connect to a Cloud.


Next, click the (+) icon next to HP.
