ViPR 2.2 - Add Compute Images

Table of Contents


ViPR system administrators can learn the ViPR configuration requirements for compute images, and how to add compute images to ViPR.

Compute Images are operating system (OS) installation files (ISO images) that ViPR uses to deploy operating systems on Vblock compute elements that have been registered to ViPR. If ViPR is used to provisionESX clusters, ViPR can also be used to add the cluster to a vCenter datacenter that has been registered to ViPR.
