Setting up a Cloud Pod Architecture environment involves initializing the Cloud Pod Architecture feature, joining pods to the pod federation, and creating global entitlements.

You must create and configure at least one global entitlement to use the Cloud Pod Architecture feature. You can optionally create sites and assign home sites.

This chapter shows how to use Horizon Administrator to set up a Cloud Pod Architecture environment. For information about using Horizon Console, see Setting Up and Managing Cloud Pod Architecture in Horizon Console. For information about using the lmvutil command-line interface, see Administering Cloud Pod Architecture with lmvutil.
