Modeling environments for clouds that use virtual system patterns#

To model environments for clouds that use virtual system patterns (VSPs), on the server, import a virtual system pattern as a resource template and then create a blueprint that is based on the resource template.

This method applies only to clouds that use VSPs. To model environments on clouds through OpenStack Heat, see Modeling environments for clouds through OpenStack Heat.

  1. Create VSPs on the target cloud.

    See Creating virtual system patterns for resource templates.

  2. Import the VSPs as resource templates.

    See Importing resource templates from clouds.

  3. Create blueprints for the environments.

    See Creating blueprints for cloud environments that use virtual system patterns.

Now you can provision environments from the blueprints. See Provisioning environments through the server (through virtual system patterns).
