In this step, the cloud administrator adds a storage profile to each cloud zone.

The administrator places fast storage at the production zone and general storage at development and test.

Prerequisites

Add cloud zones. See WordPress use case: add cloud zones.

Procedure

  1. Go to Infrastructure > Configure > Storage Profiles.
  2. Click New Storage Profile, and create a profile for the development cloud zone.

    Additional fields appear after you select the account/region.
