This section explains how to provision Virtual Machine from the Orange Flexible Engine console.
The following screenshot shows all services available with the Orange Flexible Engine console:
Click on the Elastic Cloud Server link to enter the VM provisioning screen where you can choose all the parameters for your new VM (flavor, OS,...).
You can also create many VMs at the same time.
You will access your VM through its EIP (public IP) and you can select Automatically assign at this step.
At this step you should provide a key pair to use to connect to the virtual machine.
If you do not have created one, go back to the previous screen and in the key pair menu in the left side create a new one. Make sure to keep this key pair (file .pem) on a secure place as it will allow accessing your VM without password.
Once you have clicked on create now a brief summary of what will be done is displayed. Just click submit to start the creation process.
To connect to your VM through ssh, you can use the keypair you have created previously (see above) or simply:
ssh -i [myKeyPair] cloud@[myEIP]
If you try that just after having created the VM, it will fail as the firewall (security groups) does not allow the port 22 (ssh default) to be used. To configure it, do the following.
From the Orange Flexible Engine console, go to Elastic Cloud Server and click on your VM name. In the screen that appears, click on Security Groups and add a new inbound rule to grant port 22 in TCP to any machines (0.0.0.0). Of course you can put here, an entire network or a particular machine to enhance access security.
This section explains how to provision bucket from the Orange Flexible Engine console (FE console).
To create a bucket, the procedure is very straightforward. Go to the FE console main screen and click on Object Storage Service then the Create Bucket button.
You must chose a region for your bucket (i.e a datacenter where the data will reside) and a bucket name that must be unique through the entire bucket service. Therefore, it is adviced to use a name that includes your name or project to get something nobody else will use.
Finally you can chose 3 classes of storage class:
Standard for general use with a lot of input/output
Warm for data accessed several times per month
Cold for files rarely used (archiving)
Note that in more than the standard price by GB, for Warm and Cold you will be charged for additional costs: number of requests and retrieval. Please have a look to the sobloo and documentation price list for details.
Access key provisioning
This section explains how to provision access key from the Orange Flexible Engine console (FE console).
To access to your bucket you need to create an Access Key. To perform this action you have to go on the dashboard of the FE console and select My Credential.
Next go to Access Key and select Add Access Keys.
Fill your Login API Password and your Email Verification Code.
The new Access Key will appear on the list and a CSV containing your access_ID and access_Key is downloaded on your system.
