CloudRegion node

A CloudRegion represents a geographical region provided by a cloud vendor. A cloud region is created when a new region is discovered in a cloud discovery run. CloudRegion nodes are linked to only one cloud provider.

CloudRegion nodes are under the full control of patterns.

For each region discovered, a CloudRegion node is created.
