The HP Helion Eucalyptus management console is a web-based interface that allows cloud users to provision and manage resources; it also gives cloud account administrators powerful tools to manage users, groups and policies.
Management console highlights
Cloud account administration
The management console includes support for identity and access management (IAM) tasks. Cloud account administrators can easily create and manage users, groups and access keys directly from the web-based console.
The graphical policy editor enables cloud account administrators to define permissions that control access to HP Helion Eucalyptus or AWS resources. Administrators can select from default policy templates or use pick-and-click to easily create a policy without needing to understand policy language. Advanced users can upload existing policies and customize policies within the console.
The management console has been redesigned to improve user efficiency and support an increasing number of large-scale HP Helion Eucalyptus deployments. The interface leverages responsive design to allow users the freedom to control their cloud from computer, tablet or other mobile devices.
The management console gives cloud users and administrators a guided and easy-to-use interface for using the following AWS-compatible services:
- EC2: create machine images. Provision and manage instances, elastic IPs and security groups.
- IAM: manage users, groups, credentials, quotas and policies
- S3: provision and manage object storage resources and access policies.
- Auto Scaling: define launch configurations and scaling groups. Monitor utilization and dynamically change capacity.
- Admin: all the above plus; Create and manage accounts. Customize VM types
