MultiCloud Image (MCI)

What is a MultiCloud Image (MCI)?

A RightScale object used to group and reference similar machine imagestypically with identical operating systems, operating system versions, and so on—across multiple public and private clouds. MultiCloud Images (MCIs) are key components of ServerTemplates, and indicate which combinations of operating systems, versions, supporting applications, etc., have been tested with a ServerTemplate. They also help users choose a supported software platform for new servers, based on matching machine images already installed on their target cloud.

More exhaustive information about a MultiCloud Image (MCI) can be found in the Dashboard Users Guide under MultiCloud Images.
