Quick Start Guide

In this guide, we'll walk you through the essential steps to get you from Zero to multi-cloud in a flash. Watch our tutorial video underneath, or if you prefer the written word, follow the guide below. Let's dive in!

From Zero to Multi-cloud in a Flash​

Step 1: Create an Account​

First things first, you need to sign up for an Ori Global Cloud account. Head over to our Sign-up page and create your account. Our Free Tier lets you explore the platform without any financial commitment, and when you're ready to go big, we'll be by your side. Learn more about Sign-up here.


Step 2: Onboard K8s Clusters​

It's time to onboard your Kubernetes clusters. Navigate to the Clusters section, click on + Add cluster. We'll provide you with a Helm install command. Simply copy and paste it into your cloud console CLI, hit enter, and watch your cluster get onboarded to Ori Global Cloud. Add clusters from all your cloud providers for a true multi-cloud experience. The more, the merrier. You can find out more about Clusters here.

Step 3: Your First Deployment ! 🚀​

With your clusters in place, now it's time to do your first deployment with OGC. We have created a package called Hello Ori which you can use to test deploying apps with OGC. Navigate to Packages, select Hello Ori and click Deploy. That is it! You now have your first application service running with Ori. You can connect to it via your browser, by selecting the FQDN external URL and pasting it into your browser window!

Step 4: Create an Ori Package & Add Containers​

Now you are ready to create your first Ori Package for your own Application Service. A package will define your application services, policies, network routing, container images, and more. Ori Packages are self-contained, portable units, designed for deploying and orchestrating applications across different cloud environments with ease. Head here to learn more about Packages. You can also examine the Hello Ori package to see how simple it is to configure a package.

Go to the Packages page, click + Add package, choose a project and design your Package to model your application architecture by adding Application containers with their own configuration (see below), policies in the form of selectors and finally add networking policies for connecting your Application containers to clients and other applications. You can learn more about Configuring Packages here.

Adding applications and containers to your package​

Dive into your Ori Package and start adding applications with containers to configure your application components. Choose + Add new application from the package details pag. You can pull container images from Docker Hub or set up a private registry. We’ve designed Packages to be as flexible as you want them to be, allowing for multiple configurations of your application's behaviour and runtime. You can find out more about Configuring Applications and Containers here.

Step 5: Deploy Your Own Package !​

You're all set! With your new Ori Package ready and your Kubernetes clusters connected, hit the Deploy button on your package page. Ori Global Cloud will generate a deployment plan. Click Continue and voila, your application will come to life in a multi-cloud environment. You can learn more about Deployments here.
