Once we have the Infrastructure (Networking, Kubernetes cluster, and other common configurations) and an environment (Tenant) set up, the next step is to create VMs. These could be meant for:
AKS Worker Nodes
Worker Nodes (Docker Hosts) if built-in container orchestration is used.
Regular nodes that are not part of any container orchestration, where a user manually connects and installs applications. For example, when using a Microsoft SQL Server in a VM, when running an IIS application and in other custom use cases.
None: To be used for non-Container Orchestration purposes and contents inside the VM are self-managed by the user.
Allocation Tags (Optional): If the VM is used for containers, you can optionally set a label on the VM. This label is specified during Docker application deployment to ensure that the application containers are pinned to a specific set of nodes, giving you the ability to split a tenant further into separate pools of servers and deploy applications on them.
If a VM is used for container orchestration, ensure that the Image ID corresponds to the Image in the container. Any name that begins with Duplo isan image that DuploCloud generates for Built-in container orchestration
