One of the primary benefits of a private cloud is on-demand access to shared infrastructure. Platform9 has an extremely friendly user interface, making it a snap for IT to provide:
Whether supporting a single team or multiple teams of users, Platform9 makes it easy for IT to onboard users and enforce policy-based access control.
Instances in Platform9 are launched from an image that Platform9 knows about. The image library serves as a central repository of virtual machine images that can be deployed and shared with different users, and published and updated in multiple ways.
By publishing commonly used system configurations as images in the image library, your development team can save time and get work done faster when new instances need to be launched.
Instances in Platform9 are given resources (CPU, Memory, Disk, Network) using Flavors. Platform9 ships with out-of-the-box flavors, but these are typically customized by IT admins to optimally satisfy the use case for various user teams. For instance, a test instance might be typically allocated a different flavor than a long-running production instance.
Once configured, flavors are ready for your development team to use, and help ensure consistency in resource allocation for their provisioning operations.
