Note: Be sure that your account is upgraded to either a pay-as-you-go or subscription account before proceeding.
Step 2: Set up the network
Once you’ve deployed your instance, it’s time to set up your VDC network and enable inbound and outbound traffic.
Step 3: Deploy a VM
Quickly create a new VM and connect it to the network.
Congratulations! You have successfully set up an IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions Shared environment and deployed a VM.
