In this section we will use Cloudmos Deploy to launch an example Minecraft deployment on the Akash Network. You can follow the same process for any other workload so long as it is containerized and you have an appropriate SDL.
STEP 1 - Create the Deployment
From the Dashboard/primary pane click the CREATE DEPLOYMENT button
STEP 2 - Create Certficate
A number of checks are performed to ensure necessary funds and certificates are available to launch a deployment.
If this is your first deployment with Cloudmos Deploy a CREATE CERTIFICATE prompt will be displayed. Select the CREATE CERTIFICATE button and accept transaction fee prompt from Keplr to proceed.
STEP 3 - Choose Deployment Template

At this stage we could review/customize the Akash SDL deployment template if desired but in this example we will proceed with the default settings and by pressing the DEPLOY button
STEP 5 - SDL Verification
Screen will appear which provides an additional opportunity to customize the SDL but we will again proceed with no edits by pressing the CREATE DEPLOYMENT button
Subsequently accept the Deployment Deposit pop up which specifies that 5AKT will be placed into an escrow account for deployment cost and then the Keplr transaction fee prompt
STEP 6 - Review/Accept Bid
After a minute or so a list of bids will display.
Select the most affordable, preferred provider and then press ACCEPT BID

Accept the Keplr transaction fee prompt to proceed
STEP 7 - Post Deployment
