How to create Placement Policy in new UI
The goal of this document is to walk the end-user through setting placement policies in the new HTML 5 interface.
Placement policies are important for Turbo’s real-time control platform to understand. Doing so will guarantee performance to workloads, while always keeping the estate continuously in line with business continuity.
For example, making sure redundant web-servers never reside on the same physical host, or that SQL servers never leave the host they are licensed for.
Executing on Placement Policy
Note: before executing the desired placement policy, make sure to create a group for the entity(s) to be placed and a group in which the entity(s) will be placed prior
1) On the left side – Select “Settings”
2) Select “New Policy” in upper right corner.
3) Select what type of entity(s) to “place” in addition to the group of entity(s) they will be placed “on,” or not placed.
Note: in the case below we are placing Virtual Machines on Physical Machine
4) Once appropriate groups selected/loaded, “save policy.”
Note: in this example a group of virtual machines have been selected to be placed on a group of Physical Machines; meaning the selected group of virtual machines will only be able to consume resources from the group of physical machines in which they reside.
Note: additional policies, such as merging clusters through software, licensing specific placement can also be executed via this very same workflow.
