Defined as a regional Datacenter in the cloud (Datacenter and Zone are synonymous). A cloud will often have multiple Datacenters which can help when architecting a highly available Deployment. The following fields are commonly found in the CM Dashboard user interface when configuring a Datacenter/Zone.
- Name - Name of the Datacenter/Zone.
- State - Indicates if the Datacenter/Zone is available or not. Example: available.
- Visibility - The visibility of the Datacenter/Zone. Example: private.
- Resource UID - Resource Unique IDentifier for the Datacenter/Zone. Each resource (or entity) in the Dashboard has a unique ID associated with it.
There are currently no actions you can perform with respect to Datacenters/Zones. Think of them as containing read-only information after the initial setup and configuration is performed.
