Since version BETA2 became available, the first four widgets reporting on the health of the cluster have been provided, including the provision of some immediate actions:

Resource Description Action
Networks The number of available networks, including their status Add new network
Datastores The number of available datastores, including their status Add new datastore
Instances The number of available instances, including their status Add new instance
