Cloud Region Configuration

Using CloudCenter to Manage Clouds

Clouds that need to be managed can be set up and enabled in CloudCenter. CloudCenter requires a CCO for each target cloud region or cloud datacenter that is under management.

From the CCM UI's administration console, enterprises can manage various cloud configurations in concert.

Add Cloud Region

A cloud region refers to the region identified in the CCM UI's cloud group. See Public Clouds to view a list of cloud regions supported by the CloudCenter platform. For dedicated CloudCenter deployments (customer hosted), you must install an CCO on any region of the cloud family in addition to the ones available out-of-the-box with CloudCenter-as-a-Service (Cisco hosted). See CCO for additional context on cloud nuances.

You should have already configured a cloud to add a region for that cloud. See Add Cloud at Parent Level or Configure Cloud(s) for additional context.

Icon

If you make changes to the callouts or attributes for a Cloud Region, you must restart the CCO for the changes to take effect.

 

To add a cloud region, follow this procedure.

  1. From the CCM UI, click Admin > Clouds > cloud name. On the right, a list of regions configured for this cloud are displayed.
  2. Click Add Region to add a cloud region. The Add Region popup displays.
  3. Add the Region Name and an optional Display Name for this cloud region.
  4. Click Save.

Delete Cloud Region

Admins can delete a Cloud region if a CCO is not registered for this region (see Register the CCO with the CCM).

Icon

CloudCenter 4.6.x and Earlier Releases: As other resources (for example, jobs or accounts or users) are already associated with an activated cloud region, you cannot perform the following tasks:

  • You cannot delete activated cloud regions. You can only delete a cloud region if it is not activated.

  • You cannot de-activate an activated cloud region.
Icon

Effective 4.7.0: You can delete cloud regions – even after jobs have been run on this region.

  • You can now delete Cloud Regions even after the CCO has been registered.

  • Cloud owners can delete regions if there are no running deployments and no association of the region in a Deployment Environment – If there are any, remove them first before trying this operation.

  • Ensure that all the jobs submitted in this region have already been terminated.

To delete an unwanted cloud region, follow this procedure:

  1. From the CCM UI, click Admin > Clouds > cloud name. On the right, a list of regions configured for this cloud are displayed.
  2. Click Delete Region for the corresponding Cloud Region displayed in this list.
  3. Click OK in the resulting popup window to confirm your action.
  4. T`he Clouds page displays the corresponding status and the deleted region no longer displays in the Regions section if the cloud is successfully deleted.

Actions at the Cloud Region Level

You can configure Deployment Lifecycle actions (Pre-VM start, Pre-VM stop, and so forth):

If defined, the actions are run in a Docker container on the CCO server, the CCO runs the specified actions for all launched VM – regardless of the application or the service.
