In App Controller, the Clouds page displays the following information:

  • A list of all public and private clouds, further grouped by connection name.

  • The properties of each public and private cloud to which App Controller is connected.

  • Resources used and available on private clouds.

  • Tasks you can perform on a selected public or private cloud.
