The CloudCo Partner platform is designed for rapid provisionng of cloud resources. Standard settings are configured to be optimal for most workloads, but further configuration exists for specialised needs.
Setting Boot Options
Boot Options can be set:
When an Instance is being created with the Advanced Create popup. These settings are under the Boot options section
When an Instance is created, by clicking the ⚙ Actions button next to the Instance in the Instances screen under Compute, and selecting Boot Options
WARNING: If an Instance has been created with the Quick Create popup, it is advised not to alter this setting. Changes may result in an unbootable Instance.
Instances can be configured to boot from the following sources:
|Disk||a storage disk provisioned on the platform (default)|
|CD-ROM||a storage disk that has been written from an ISO created from another instance. Refer to CD-ROM Disks in the Storage section for details.|
In the event of an Instance shutting down, the CloudCo Partner platform can be configured to automatically restart. This may be useful to maintain uptime, though for certain workloads you may require the Instance to remain offline to perform checks.
Instances can be set to automatically restart with the following options:
|On Shutdown||reboot if the platform detects an Instance being shut down internally|
|On Restart||reboot if the platform detects an Instance being restart internally|
|On Crash||reboot if the platform detects an Instance crashing internally|
On Shutdown and On Restart do not apply to Instances that are shut down or restarted from the Instance ⚙ Actions menu.
