As a tenant, in VMware Cloud Director Availability, you can see the required compute resources to fail over and power on the protected virtual machines in the destination cloud site. With this information, you can estimate your OrgVDC capacity and it helps you with provisioning planning.

VMware Cloud Director Availability presents the resource requirements as the combined CPU, memory, and storage resources that are provisioned on a failover for all virtual machine replications.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. At the bottom of the Dashboard page, see the Required resources dashboard.
    In this dashboard, you can see the combined resource requirements from all the OrgVDCs in your organization.

    1. In the left pane, choose a replication direction.
    2. To see the resources required by virtual machine replications, click the VM button and click the Resources button.
      For all virtual machine replications listed in the table, in the columns for CPUs, Memory, and Disk capacity you can see the resource requirements for each virtual machine replication.
    3. To see the resources required by vApp replications, click the vApp button and click the Resources button.
      For all vApp replication listed in the table, in the columns for CPUs, Memory, and Disk capacity you can see the resource requirements for each vApp replication.
