Subject [DISCUSS] Dedicated Resources: Dedicate Pods, Clusters, Hosts to a domain
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 06:19:35 GMT

Currently in CloudStack architecture, domains can have dedicated zones but not pods, clusters
or hosts.

We are proposing this functionality in "Dedicated Resources" where a domain or a sub-domain
can have dedicated pods,  clusters or hosts.

Why we need this feature:
Dedicating a zone might be very expensive offering for an end users, whereas dedicating a
pod, cluster or a host
may be more economical. This feature will allow Root-Admin to dedicate resources to a specific
domain that needs
private infrastructure for additional security or performance guarantees.

In this feature
- Root Admin should be able to dedicate a pod/cluster/host to a particular domain or sub-domain.
- Any users in that domain can access pod/cluster/host dedicated to their domain.
- No users outside that domain, can access the dedicated pod, cluster or hosts (eg. deploy
instance on that pod/cluster/host).
- If there is no available resources in the dedicated pod/cluster/host, then CloudStack should
fail the operation
  for a user in that domain.

I have filed a jira request:, to track
this feature. Please let me know any comments and suggestions.
