What is a MultiCloud Image (MCI)?

A RightScale object used to group and reference similar machine images — typically with identical operating systems, operating system versions, and so on — across multiple public and private clouds. MultiCloud Images (MCIs) are key components of ServerTemplates, and indicate which combinations of operating systems, versions, supporting applications, etc., have been tested with a ServerTemplate. They also help users choose a supported software platform for new servers, based on matching machine images already installed on their target cloud.
