PCS (Public Cloud Services) offers an array of compute and storage options that you can use to create the ideal cloud environment for your infrastructure needs. The following article is a walk-through of the layout of a public cloud project via the OVHcloud Manager.
To begin, log in to the OVHcloud Manager. Then, click on Cloud in the top-left corner of the page. Once in the cloud space, select your public cloud project, which will take you to the Infrastructure tab.
From here, you can create a new instance (for more information, please check out our Deploying a Public Cloud Instance article) and manage existing instances (for more information, please check out our Managing a Public Cloud Instance article).
One very important option from the Actions drop-down allows you to delete your project.
When selecting the Delete this project option, all of the instances, add-ons, and backups associated with the project are deleted.
The Backups tab allows you to view all snapshots.
From the Additional drives tab, you can add an external hard drive (i.e., block storage) and manage existing devices.
For more information, please check out our Adding a Hard Disk to a Public Cloud Instance article.
In the SSH keys tab, you can add or delete SSH keys to be used when deploying a public cloud instance.
When you first create a public cloud project, there will be a quota for how many instances and compute resources you will be allowed to utilize.
From the Storage tab, you can add containers (i.e., object storage) and manage existing ones.
On the OpenStack tab, you can add and manage authorized users to access Horizon (the OpenStack dashboard).
Having read through this article, you should have a basic understanding of the various tabs for a private cloud project. For further reading, please check out the Public Cloud Services section of the OVHcloud Support website.
