With wider cloud adoption, security, compliance, and other requirements demonstrate the need to assert the location of a compute host. Virtual Machine images may likewise contain meta data to indicate compliance requirements such as whether they must be launched on a trusted machine and/or in a particular geo. Displaying in the dashboard the geo and trust status of a compute nodes, of virtual machine instances, and any trust and geo requirements of images would be of value to cloud admins, and users.
