A blueprint specifies the workflow that is used to provision a virtual machine and includes information such as CPU, memory, and storage.

This scenario explains how to publish blueprints for the Production business group.

Machine blueprints include additional provisioning information such as the locations of required disk images or virtualization platform objects. Blueprints also specify policies such as the lease period and can include networking and security components such as security groups, policies, or tags.

This scenario gives detailed information on the procedures for a single-region deployment. You can also use these procedures for Region A of a dual-region deployment. If you want to use the procedures for Region B in a dual-region deployment, you have to use different IP address and machine names and might have to make some other changes.


  1. Prepare for the deployment. See Preparing for Region A Scenario Deployment.

  2. Perform the tasks in Configuring Reservation Policies and Network Policies in Region A.
