To initialize the Cloud Pod Architecture feature, the Horizon administrator logs in to the Horizon Administrator user interface for a Connection Server instance in East Pod 1, selects View Configuration > Cloud Pod Architecture, and clicks Initialize the Cloud Pod Architecture feature.

Because the Horizon administrator uses the Horizon Administrator user interface for a Connection Server instance in East Pod 1, the pod federation initially contains East Pod 1. The pod federation also contains a single site, called Default First Site, which contains East Pod 1.
