You create an Organization to group related users in Data Management for VMware Tanzu.
Organizations can have multiple databases that are part of different vSphere clusters. Alternatively, multiple organizations can be part of a single vSphere cluster. In either case, databases belong to an Organization rather than the environment on which they are running. DB FQDN Suffix is the fully-qualified distinguished name suffix for the databases that are part of an Organization.
