You can use Tags to tell CloudStack where you would 'like' it to put resources, but tags are
best endeavours.

If you have two clusters, but the one you want to place resources on using Tags is full, CloudStack
will simply allocate the resources to the other cluster.

After reading the URLs above it sounds like I can use tags to get what I want...

If I tag a cluster or a primary storage that is related to a
particular cluster - then I could also use the same tag when deploying
Instances to make sure only certain Instances go to a certain cluster
(or primary storage)? Is that right?

Something close to this is already being worked on. These talk about
dedicating resources to accounts/domain. See if you can find a flag to
"restrict" them as well.
Or you can create an enhancement for the same

Dedicating templates should be possible by using launchPermissions api for

Bryan, I like this idea - being able to restrict accounts/users/projects
certain zones/hypervisors/templates/etc. There's already a lot of
granularity in CS, why not a little more? :-)

Well , you can always set up a private zone by unchecking the public
checkbox in the zone wizard .

Subject: restricting users to a or Zone / Cluster

I'd like to restrict users to a specific cluster in a zone but I don't
that as possible. Am I correct in this statement?

Is there a way to restrict users to a specific Zone?

Assuming I trust my users and just give them a specific zone to use -
I setup the zone can I just use the same secondary storage as others
are do I need a new set of secondary storages as well?
