This topic contains the following sections:

RDP

Remote Desktop Protocol, a proprietary protocol by Microsoft providing a graphical interface for the user to connect to another computer.

Visit the Microsoft Official Website page for the instructions on using RDP to connect to another computer.

Region

Group of Cloud hardware servers geographically located in the same place, managed independently and isolated from other servers.

EPAM Orchestrator allows its users to use private EPAM regions as well as regions of public cloud providers (AWS, AZURE)

For more information on available virtualization regions, see Maestro CLI User Guide Annex D - Service Locations.

Report

Automatically aggregated summary of virtual infrastructure indicators, such as costs, events, resources utilization, performance statistices, etc., for the specified period of time.

Reports can be displayed to CLI output, Cloud Management Console window, or delivered by email.

Depending on their content and purpose, reports are targeted at different groups of users and, therefore, sent to different recipients. The list of reports available to the user is determined by the user's role in the project. Some reports are available for subscription via the Cloud Management Console where the user can either subscribe to certain reports or unsubscribe from them. However, if a user has been subscribed to a certain report by a superior manager, they cannot unsubscribe from such report.

See the Cloud Reporting Overview for the summary of reports existing in EPAM Cloud and their description.

Resource

Infrastructural and Billing object in the EPAM Cloud. Resources are divided into instances (virtual machines), volumes (storage) and checkpoints (instance recovery points).

The resources are divided into:

  • Active Resources: those belonging to running instances. Active resources are billed differently from passive ones.
  • Passive Resources: those belonging to stopped or suspended instances. CPU and RAM usage is not charged for stopped instances. At the same time, storage volumes of stopped instances are charged.

See EPAM Cloud - Account Management Guide, Section 8, Billing in EPAM Cloud, for details.
