vOneCloud offers a rich set of interfaces to interact with your cloud infrastructure, tailored for specific needs of cloud administrators and cloud users alike.
Web Interface (Sunstone)¶
vOneCloud web interface, called Sunstone, offers three main views:
- Sunstone vCenter view: Aimed at cloud administrators, this view is tailored to present all the available options to manage the physical and virtual aspects of your vCenter infrastructure.
- Sunstone Group Admin View: Aimed at Group administrators, this interface is designed to manage all the virtual resources accesible by a group of users, including the creation of new users.
- Sunstone vCenter Cloud View: Aimed at end users, this interface eases virtual resource provisioning and hides all the complexity of the cloud that is going on behind the scenes. It is a tailored version of the Sunstone Cloud View, with adjusted functionality relevant to vOneCloud and vCenter.

If you are a SysAdmin, you will probably appreciate vOneCloud’s CLI, which uses the same design philosophy behind *nix commands (one command for each task).
