Your instance must have a name; a description is optional. In certain circumstances you deliberately choose the Availability Zone, but you can also let Nectar decide by choosing Any Availability Zone. You can launch multiple instances at a time by setting the Count (e.g. 2 will launch 2 VM’s).
Let’s choose a Boot Source, for this tutorial, we are are going to select
