To create a MultiCloud image you will first need to provide a nickname and description. The next step is to manually select images for each cloud (AWS region) that you want to the MultiCloud Image to support under the Clouds tab.Design > MultiCloud Images > New
A MultiCloud Image is a RightScale component that functions as a map or pointer to machine images in specific clouds. Each ServerTemplate must reference a single MultiCloud Image that defines which image should be used when a server is launched in a particular cloud. When you add a server to a deployment, the ServerTemplate's MultiCloud Image will determine for which cloud you will be allowed to create a server. For example, if a ServerTemplate is using a MultiCloud Image that only has references to images in the 'US-East' and 'US-West' regions, you will not be able to use that ServerTemplate to create a server in the 'EU' region. Based on the cloud that is selected, the server will inherit the appropriate image for that region (e.g. RightImage CentOS5.2i386_v4.2.4) based on what's defined by the MultiCloud Image. Once a server has been added, it will inherit the image that is specified for that region by the MultiCloud Image. Later, you can manually edit the server's configuration and select a different image.Design > MultiCloud Images > Index
A MultiCloud Image is a RightScale component that functions as a map or pointer to machine images in specific clouds (e.g. AWS US-East, Rackspace).
The Revisions tab shows the history of all committed revisions of a MultiCloud object. Select a particular revision to view. A revision is snapshot of a MultiCloud object's configuration at a particular time whereas the HEAD version is the working copy and only editable version of the MultiCloud object. New revisions are created using the 'Commit' action button when viewing the HEAD version.Design > MultiCloud Images > Show > Revisions tab
The Clouds tab lists all of the clouds supported by the MultiCloud Image. If you are creating a MultiCloud Image for the first time, you will need to specify at least one image for a cloud to make the MultiCloud Image functional. Add additional images for clouds as needed.
In order to launch a server in a private cloud, you need RightImages that are designed for use with private clouds. You can access the appropriate RightImages by contacting RightScale Sales. Please contact your RightScale Sales Account Manager for assistance. If you do not have a RightScale Account Manager, please contact the sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org.Design > MultiCloud Images > Show > Clouds tab
The Info tab displays general information about the MultiCloud object.
The Xref tab displays all of the ServerTemplates that are using the MultiCloud Image. Remember, the cross-reference data that is shown is based on the selected revision or HEAD version of the MultiCloud Image. You will not be able to delete a MultiCloud Image object if it is being used by one of your ServerTemplates. The Xref tab is a great way to determine where a MultiCloud Image is being used across your account.Design > MultiCloud Images > Show > Xref tab
