Prerequisites on Azure
Before launching Cloudbreak on Azure, you must meet the following prerequisites.
In order to launch Cloudbreak on the Azure, log in to your existing Microsoft Azure account. If you don't have an account, you can set it up at https://azure.microsoft.com.
Decide in which Azure region you would like to launch Cloudbreak. You can launch Cloudbreak and provision your clusters in all regions supported by Microsoft Azure.
Clusters created via Cloudbreak can be in the same or different region as Cloudbreak; when you launch a cluster, you select the region in which to launch it.
Azure regions (External)
SSH key pair
When launching Cloudbreak, you will be required to provide your public SSH key. If needed, you can generate a new SSH key pair:
- On MacOS X and Linux using
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
- On Windows using PuTTygen
You must have a virtual network configured on your cloud provider.
Ports 22 (SSH), 80 (HTTPS), and 443 (HTTPS) must be open on the security group
In order to provision clusters on Azure, Cloudbreak must be able to assume a sufficient Azure role ("Owner" or "Contributor") via Cloudbreak credential:
Your account must have the "Contributor" role (or a role with equivalent permissions) in the subscription in order to create a Cloudbreak credential using the app-based credential method. The role must be assigned to the app that you register in Cloudbreak.
To check the roles in your subscription, log in to your Azure account and navigate to Subscriptions.
