All hosts in all Clusters connected to Sandwich Cloud Zones must allow the following
VM serial port connected to vSPC.
All hosts must also be able to communicate with the Sandwich Cloud Metadata Service.
Feel free to VMotion VMs to different hosts to balance out your clusters.
VMs must be kept within the same Compute Cluster. If they are not Sandwich Cloud may loose track of the VM and any action performed may result in unexpected behavior.

- Create a new Region connected to the new Image Datastore
- Create new Zones in the new Region and enable scheduling.
- Enable scheduling into the new Region.
- Disable scheduling into the old Region.
- Import images into the new Region.
- Deploy replacement VMs into the new Region.
- Decommission Zones in the old Region.
