I want to separate my cloud into different parts, but, I'm really confused abut these concepts: region ? Cell ? availability zone ? aggregate host ?

Anyone can give me some examples about how these concepts working together in a cloud ?

Thanks -chen

I would recommend you start by reading the "Segregating Your Cloud" section in the OpenStack Operations Guide:

(some basic chinese translation is here if that is useful to you :

As an example, I used to work on a cloud that had 8 different data centres providing a cloud on a single API endpoint. Each datacentre was a 'cell', but within each cell could be multiple host aggregates.

Hi Chen,

For understanding the availability zone and host aggregate you may refer segregation-in-grizzly-availability-zones-versus-host-aggregates
