User documentation - CLAAUDIA Compute Cloud Strato
Hello and welcome to the documentation for the CLAAUDIA Cloud. The documentation is targeted at our Strato project. To get valuable feedback from the strato phase CLAAUDIA expects the following of the participants
- You to make use of the facilities.
- That you provide feedback on your experience with phase 1.
- You must not use AAU sensitive or GDPR restricted data in phase 1.
- That you participate in a user-to-user self-help group.
- Syslog from instances will be sent to ITS logging system.
- There will NOT be made backup of the data you upload to the cloud, so do not delete your own copy. The data is safe in the cloud, as the storage system replicates it. There is just no additional backup, so if you by accident delete it from the cloud, it will be gone, and needs to be re-uploaded.
- You will have full onwership of the instance you create and can therefore install additional software, tweak it or use it as is.
Coming from the pilot?
What is CLAAUDIA Compute Cloud Strato
CLAAUDIA Compute Cloud Strato is a compute cloud hosted at AAU. The cloud is based on OpenStack. A user can launch multiple instances based on different flavors and images. The flavour is the computing resource and the image is the OS+software.
Quick-start - Your first instance
Follow the guide to get your first Ubuntu 18.04 instance up and running in minutes! The guide will take you through the steps of logging in to the cloud, setting up an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS instance and accessing the instance with SSH.
Prebuilt image documentation
In Strato, a range of different pre-built images will be available. Every image is based on an AAU-flavored version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The AAU-flavored Ubuntu image is accessible through SSH with a key-pair. Derived images are also accessible through SSH, the images with a web-interface require additional setup to access them via a browser.

To support as many as possible we have created a Yammer Compute Cloud Group. The Yammer Compute Cloud Group is a forum to ask questions and share tips/tricks. The idea is to answer questions once, but let everyone benefit from it.
Direct support is also possible. Please ask your question by submitting an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
