Before you associate a Local cloud connector with a device, you
must discover one or more devices in your network.
The self-service resources that your tenants use can be stored remotely in
a third party cloud, or locally on F5 devices in your network. Before you can give
tenants access to these resources, you must configure a cloud connector. A cloud
connector provide two services. First, you can use it to identify a specific
set of resources, much like a virtual container, and second it provides integration with
third-party cloud services. Associating a cloud connector to a device allows you to
segregate cloud resources across data centers. As the cloud service provider, you can
create groups of network resources based on certain criteria, such as location or levels
of service. You then link a tenant with that cloud connector to deploy tenant-specific
cloud and application services.
