Delete a CloudSimple Private Cloud

CloudSimple provides the flexibility to delete a Private Cloud. A Private Cloud consists of one or more vSphere clusters. Each cluster can have 3 to 16 nodes. When you delete a Private Cloud, all clusters are deleted.

Before you begin

Deletion of a Private Cloud deletes the entire Private Cloud. All components of the Private Cloud are deleted. If you want to keep any of the data, ensure that you've backed up the data to on-premises storage or Azure storage.

The components of a Private Cloud include:

  • CloudSimple nodes
  • Virtual machines
  • VLANs/Subnets
  • All user data stored on the Private Cloud
  • All firewall rule attachments to a VLAN/Subnet
