Figure 2.3 - Using EDB Ark in a Cloud.
When using OpenStack as a cloud provider, an OpenStack image must be registered for use as an EDB Ark server image. Each EDB Ark server image specifies the image ID of an OpenStack image and the name of the default_user that is specified in the /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg file associated with that image. You must register the OpenStack image in the EDB Ark Administrator’s console before using it to create an EDB Ark database engine definition.
After describing the server image in the EDB Ark Administrator’s console, an administrator can use the server image to define an EDB Ark database engine. A database engine is a combination of an OpenStack virtual machine and a database type.

Figure 2.4 – Using an OpenStack image with EDB Ark.
The Administrator can use the same server image to create multiple database engine definitions. (see Figure 2.4). For example, you can create database engines for both PostgreSQL 9.4 and EDB Postgres Advanced Server 9.5 that are both provisioned on the same underlying server image CentOS 6.5 x86_64.
