The infrastructure view provides the Cloud Admin with a summary view of the Cloud Infrastructure. The view shows Compute (CPU/Memory), Storage and Networking resources. The Cloud Admin can easily see the resources allocated to Cloud users (black) and the used resources (red), as well as the reserved public IPs (green). It is possible to allocate more resources than those that actually exist, until the users need to consume the real resources.
