GiG G8

Mist helps you manage your infrastructure on any number of GiG G8 clusters alongside other supported clouds. This helps you manage hybrid and multi-cloud setups from a single pane of glass.
  • Specifically for G8, with Mist you can:
  • Get a list of your VMs. Listings include all metadata information, e.g. state etc.
  • Start, stop, reboot and delete VMs.
  • Create new VMs.
  • List, create, attach, detach and delete storage volumes. 
  • List, create and delete cloud spaces.
You can also leverage features that are common to all our supported clouds, e.g. tags, ownership, expiration dates, cost quotas, RBAC, shell, scripts, orchestration, monitoring, rules, audit logs etc.

Please note that G8 support is under heavy development and you should expect major changes in the next Mist version.
