Plan Authoring for Windows Azure Pack: Web Sites

Updated: October 17, 2013

This page describes procedures and settings are specific to plan authoring for Windows Azure Pack: Web Sites. For general information about authoring plans and add-ons in Windows Azure Pack, see Administer Plans and Add-ons.

  • After setting up Windows Azure Pack: Web Sites, you can create sets of offerings (or “plans”) for the tenant customers who will use your web site hosting service.

  • You can create as many plans as you want and name them as you wish.

  • Each plan that you create will have three levels of service: Intro (Shared), Basic (Shared), and Reserved.

  • For each of the three levels, you can configure 17 different quotas related to web site features and capacities.

  • The combination of quotas that you set for each level of service determines the restrictions and benefits that each level of service in the plan will have.

  • You can add other services to the plan besides Web Sites clouds, but those choices are not covered here. For more information, see Administer Plans and Add-ons.

The sections that follow present the steps for authoring and configuring a plan for Windows Azure Pack: Web Sites.

  1. In the Windows Azure Pack management portal for administrators, choose Plans in the left pane, and then click New.

  2. In the Author a Hosting Plan dialog, provide a name for the plan, and then click the right arrow.

  3. In the Plan Services dialog, select Web Site Cloud, and then choose a web site cloud from the list on the right. (You can also choose other services at this point, but for Web Site hosting, you should choose at least one web site cloud.)

  4. In the Plan Add-Ons dialog, you have the option to include add-ons in your plan if you have made add-ons available. For more information, see Administer Plans and Add-ons.

  5. Click the checkmark to finish.

  1. In the Windows Azure Pack management portal for administrators, choose Plans in the left pane, and then choose the name of the plan that you created. The plan’s dashboard appears.

  2. On the plan dashboard, there are options in the command bar to Change Access to make the plan public (it is private by default), Clone or Delete your plan, Link an add-on, and Add or Remove a service. For more information on these features, see Administer Plans and Add-ons.

  3. Click the name of the web site cloud that your plan is using. The next page presents the list of quotas for the web site cloud that you can configure for the Intro (Shared), Basic (Shared), and Reserved service levels.

  4. Click the name of a quota to select it, and then choose Edit in the command bar at the bottom of the page to edit it.

  5. In the Quota dialog, specify the values that you want to enforce for each service level. Note that:

    • Some quotas have an Enforcement Duration (Minutes) setting.

    • Some quotas have an Exceed Action setting, for which the options are Do nothing, Stop web site, or Redirect to parking page.

All of the quotas are described in the section that follows.
