Posted June 06, 2018 03:14:54If you’re like me, you use the cloud and then don’t have the resources to dedicate to running the software in your infrastructure.
That means you’re forced to wait for a full cloud service to be up and running on the hardware.
That can be painful, especially if you’re running a lot of virtual machines.
That’s where cloudx comes in.
Cloudx, created by VMware, provides a hybrid of a cloud service and virtualized workloads for cloud-based and hyper-scale workloads.
Using cloudx, you can take your existing workloads and run them on virtual machines in a way that is optimized for both compute and storage.
To get started, go to cloudx.vmware.com and sign up for a free 30-day trial of cloudx or upgrade to a full year of cloud.
When you are ready to get going, just follow the steps below.
First, you’ll need to create a new account on cloud.vmnet.com.
You’ll need a cloud account to use this service, but you’ll also need to be able to connect to a public or private cloud.
Once you’ve created your account, log in to your account and select the cloud.
You can then select the hyper-v option from the drop-down menu.
Select the virtual machines tab, and click Create.
You will be prompted to select the hardware that you’d like to use to host the virtual machine.
You might also want to select a number of virtual disks.
Then click Create the virtualization plan.
Next, click Create virtual machine to create the virtual workload.
In the Create virtual machines window, click the “CloudX” tab, then click Create .
If you’re using the CloudX service, then you can skip this step.
The next time you log into your account or upgrade, you will see a notification on your screen.
To ensure that you are actually connected to the cloud, click Connect.
Now, click OK to close the Cloudx dashboard and you’ll be taken to the Cloud Storage Manager screen.
There, you should see a list of the virtualized machines in your storage.
If you are not using a virtual machine, then your storage is configured as a cloud-hosted virtual machine for storage.
To check that your storage has been configured as cloud storage, click View Storage.
You can also configure storage as a dedicated server for the virtual computer, if you’d prefer.
If you are running a large number of servers and don’t want to install new virtual machines to each server, you might want to create one or more dedicated virtual machines for each server and configure them to share the storage space.
For example, if your storage space is very small, then creating a dedicated virtual machine might be more appropriate than creating a virtual server.
Click OK to finish the setup, then close the Storage Manager page.
If everything went well, you have a virtualized server that can run all of your storage and can then be deployed to other virtual machines on your server.
To do this, follow the instructions below.
If all went well and you’re ready to go, click Continue to proceed to the next step.
Once that has been completed, you may see the new virtual machine in the storage.
Now, you’re going to configure the storage settings that you set for your virtual machines, including the storage tier.
