Resource types

BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management is structured to use two general categories of resources:

  • Infrastructure resources—These are the actual data center resources on which services are hosted. Servers, database systems, storage devices, and networks are all examples of infrastructure resources. Infrastructure resources can be physical or virtual. Infrastructure resources are onboarded to the cloud by Resources. The following topics provide overview information about the resource types:
  • Cloud resources — These are abstractions of infrastructure resources, and normalize the management of infrastructure resources. Compute resource containers, network zones, and virtual firewalls are all examples of cloud resources. As with infrastructure resources, BMC Cloud Lifecycle management groups cloud resources as compute, platform, network, and storage resource types. Unlike infrastructure resources, cloud resources are always virtual.
