First Steps as a Scalr Administrator

Did you just deploy your new Scalr install? Follow these instructions to get started:


Accounts are fully isolated resource pools.  Each account has an Owner.  A Scalr instance may contain as many Accounts as you wish. Accounts contain one or multiple Environments.


Environments are loosely isolated resource pools. Each Environment is connected to one or multiple Cloud Platforms. One or multiple Teams can be granted access to each Environment.


Teams allow you to group similar users, and grant them access to your Environments.


Scalr exposes three distinct types of users. Learn more about them here.

Policy Enforcement

Scalr lets you define policies that will apply across all the Users, Environments, or cloud resources in your account.


Beyond passwords, you can configure Scalr for additional security.
