Configure Resource Allocation And Prices

Buckets enable you to set up resources allocation and pricing separately. They are subdivided into two tabs:

  • Access Control - in this section you configure the resources allocation for the users under this bucket. If you assign a bucket to a user, that user will have access only to those resources which you have added to the bucket. If no resources are added to a section of the Access Control, e.g. compute zones, the user under the bucket will not have access to any of the compute zones in the cloud.

  • Rate Card - in this section you set up prices for the resources and the amount of resources users can request for free. Users under the bucket will be billed according to the prices you configure in the Rate Card.

These tabs are further subdivided into sections that depend on the server types of resources you have in the cloud:  

  • Virtual - the server type under which Xen, KVM, or CloudBoot compute, data store, network and backup server zones of the virtual server type can be created 

  • Smart - the server type under which KVM compute, data store, network and backup server zones of the smart type can be created

  • Baremetal - the server type under which XEN compute and network zones of the baremetal type can be created

  • Other - the resources that relate to the system and do not have a server type. This section includes backup resource zones, template store, edge groups, recipe groups and service add-on groups.

For convenience, you can duplicate resources from the Access Control to the Rate Card and vice versa. When adding a resource to the Access Control tick the Duplicate to rate card checkbox and the resource will be added to the Rate Card with no prices and free limits by default. Similarly, when adding a resource to the Rate Card tick the Duplicate to access control checkbox box and the resource will be added to the access control with no limits by default.

Be careful when deleting or editing resources in buckets assigned to users or user groups and which have been used to build servers, as any changes will affect these servers. For example, if you have a server running on a template and the template's store is removed from the bucket, the server will remain running but it will not be possible to edit it. Therefore, we advise to clone the required bucket and make the necessary changes in the cloned version.



Configure Access Control


Access control is used to manage user’s resources availability. For the newly created bucket, the Access Control is empty, and that means that no resources are available to a user to whom this bucket is assigned. To make compute, disk space, or networking resources available, add the corresponding zones to a bucket. 

  • If you do not add resources to a section of Access Control, e.g. compute zone, the user under this bucket will not have access to any of the compute zones in the cloud.
  • If you remove a template store or compute/data store/network/backup server zone from the user's Access Control, it will not be possible to edit the resources of the user's servers running in this zone(s).

To manage the resources allocation:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > AdminBuckets menu.

  2. Click a label of a bucket. You will be redirected to the Access Control tab of the bucket.

  3. Click an icon to select the required server type and add resources as follows: 

    • Click the + in the appropriate box.
    • When the new windows pops up, set limits for resources (see the table below for reference).
    • Select as many compute zones as you need to set the same limits for all resources of the following types:
      • Compute zone resource 
      • Data store zone resource

      • Network zone resource 

      • Backup server zone resource

        After you submit changes, you can edit limits for any zone resource in the bucket.

      • Select the Duplicate to rate card checkbox if you want to set free limits and prices for the resources.

Configure Rate Card


Rate Card is used to manage the prices and the amount of free limits for resources. For the newly created bucket, the Rate Card is empty, and that means that a user, to whom this bucket is assigned, is not billed for any of the resources in the system. To configure pricing for compute, disk space, or networking resources, add the corresponding zones to the bucket's Rate Card. 

  • If you add a resource to the Rate Card but do not add it to the Access Control, the user under this bucket will not have access to that resource.
  • In case you remove from Access Control a resource on which users under the bucket have running servers, the users' existing servers will remain as they are, but users will not be able to access these resources to create new servers. If you leave such a resource in the Rate Card, the users' existing servers will continue to be billed according to the prices you have configured.
  • If you remove a template store or compute/data store/network/backup server zone from the Rate Card, the prices for the removed resource will be set to zero for the servers using this zone(s).
  • Note that if you set price equal number with precision 10 or more (e.g.:0.008789062511) the price is saved equal number with precision 8 (e.g.:0.00878906).
  • If you want to disable prices completely you can do so by enabling the Disable billing slider at the Edit System Configuration page. When the billing is disabled, the Rate Cards are removed from existing buckets. Note that if billing is enabled again, the prices won't be recalculated again. Instead, the price calculation will start with the next hour.

To manage pricing for the resources:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Admin > Buckets menu.

  2. Click a label of a bucket. You will be redirected to the Access Control tab of the bucket.

  3. Click the Rate Card tab.
  4. Click an icon to select the required server type and add resources as follows: 

    • Click the + in the appropriate section.
    • When the new windows pops up, set the value for the free limit and the price (see the table below for reference).
    • Select as many compute zones as you need to set the same limits for all resources of the following types:
      • Compute zone resource
      • Data store zone resource

      • Network zone resource 

      • Backup server zone resource

        After you submit changes, you can edit free limits and prices for any zone resource in the bucket.

    • Select the Duplicate to access control checkbox if you want to add the resource not only to Rate Card but also to Access Control.
