Scenarios

You are the OpenStack Administrator at the Pinehead Institute of Science and Technology:

- You have been tasked with creating a new instance named research in the physics project with the CLI, using a new public flavor that will have 1 vCPU, 1 GB RAM, and 2 GB of disk named m1.info and the id of 20. The instance will be on the Public network and use the cirros image. Once you have created the server, you will need to create a snapshot named research_snapshot.

- You have been tasked with creating a new instance named data in the demo project, using a new flavor that will have 1 vCPU, 1 GB RAM and 3 GB of disk named m1.data with the id 21 and allow access to the demo project. Once you have created the server, you will need to create a snapshot named data_snapshot.
