Better understand the resources to better use them

A resource quota is allocated to each Nova project.
This determines what can be used to create and manage virtual machine instances.


List of available ressources:

  • virtual machine instances
  • VCUPs - Virtual Central Processing Unit: processors that are assigned to virtual machines.
  • RAM - Random Access Memory
  • floating ip adresses : public and routable ip addresses that can be assigned to instances.
  • security groups : allows you to define a set of ip filtering rules to limit access to instances from the outside world.
  • volumes : storage devices that can be attached to an instance.
  • storage of volumes : overall storage capacity for the project.
