Configuring AWS Cloud

Users who are members of the Virtual Provisioning Cloud Administrators group can create one or more AWS accounts and then configure the system to communicate with the AWS accounts.

Collect the following information about your AWS accounts for use while configuring the instance to communicate with the accounts:

  • Access Key ID
  • Secret Access Key
