The process of provisioning a VPC is similar to purchasing a computer from an online retailer. To buy a computer from the retailer, users first configure their desired machine by configuring the available resources (such as processor, RAM, disk). When finished, they check the price and click Add To Cart. The retailer verifies the resources are available and adds the computer to a shopping cart. Their shopping cart then contains a single computer with the specifications the user set up in the configuration page. If they want a second computer, they go through the process again.
A VPC contains many resources and typically many reservations. During the create VPC process, users "build" their VPC by specifying their desired resource requirements for reservations that represent different items such as compute storage and network resources. Once the VPC is configured, Viewpoint verifies the resources are available and asks Moab how much that VPC would cost. If the VPC is available, users can add this VPC to their shopping cart (assuming billing is enabled). After checkout, they then have a single VPC configured how they want it.
