Launch new instances of boxes or manage those already launched from the Instances page. Each instance is a box installed on virtual infrastructure provisioned to a public, private cloud provider, or your own infrastructure.

For a quick look at what's where, take a tour of the Instances page.

From the instances page, you can

  • Deploy a new instance. Select a box or a service, provide deployment values as needed via variables, select binding instances, and set provider deployment options from a profile.
  • Edit in the Lifecycle Editor. After launching an instance, you can debug or tune its configuration in the lifecycle editor.
  • Terminate instances and do more. Reinstall, reconfigure, shut down, terminate, or power on instances either through the lifecycle editor or from the instances page.
