Service Activation and Manipulation

To activate Magento as a Service, use the or2-manage-service (or2ms) command with the -a/--activate flag and the -s/--service-name parameter with magento value:

or2ms -p project -r region -a -s magento

To deactivate the service, run the same command with the -d/--deactivate flag:

or2ms -p project -r region -d -s magento

By default, Magento servers are MEDIUM-shaped VMs with CentOS operating system.

As soon as the Magento service is activated, its data can be retrieved using the or2-describe-services (or2dser) command:

or2dser -p project -r region -S magento

You can find the details on the VMs created within the service activation, by calling the or2-describe-instances (or2din) command with -S magento parameter:

or2din -p project -r region -S magento

Web UI

Once the Magento service has been activated, you can access its Web UI. The URL, login and password can be found in the response to the or2dser command.

Using the provided URL, login and password, you can access the Magento Web UI:

Pricing

The service usage price is defined by the price of the VM created during the Magento service activation. A Magento server has the following default configuration:

  • Shape: MEDIUM
  • Image: CentOS7_64-bit

Therefore, the approximate monthly cost of one Magento instance of 100% and 24/7 load is about $58.59 in EPAM-BY1 region (as of 09/01/2016). The price can vary depending on the region and the usage pattern.
