The Applications tab in your Nectar Dashboard is a gateway to launching an instance with pre-configured applications.The Nectar Application Catalog is powered by the Murano OpenStack project and provides a simple interface for deploying pre-packaged, cloud-ready applications.

From the dashboard, you can browse available applications and quickly deploy them. Once deployed, you’ll have an instance ready to go with your application. If you select your keypair at deployment time, you’ll also have full SSH access to the instance, allowing you to install any extra software or make changes to the environment.

To launch a pre-configured instance, find the application/s of interest and select "Quick Deploy". Follow the prompts to customise the set up.  After the set-up is configured, select "Deploy This Environment".

Nectar Cloud users are welcome to submit packages to be included in the Nectar Applications Catalog. Please refer to "Submitting a Package for Nectar Applications" instructions on how to do this.
