Workflow for Creating Your First Instance

Compute Classic supports several workflows for creating instances and the associated networking and storage resources.

For example, you can create the required storage volumes first and then create the instances to which the storage volumes should be attached. Alternatively, you can create instances first and then create and attach the required storage volumes to the instances. Similarly, you can create security lists first and then create instances and add them to the security lists, or you can create the instances first and then create security lists and add instances to them.

The workflow for creating an instance also varies depending on the type of instance you want to create. Use the appropriate recommended workflow for creating an Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, or Windows instance.
