As a service provider, in VMware Cloud Director Availability, you can see the required compute resources per tenant and by all tenants to fail over and power on the protected virtual machines in the destination cloud site. With this information, you can calculate the level of over-provisioning in the disaster recovery infrastructure and provide the extra capacity to tenants.

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 resource requirements by organization and a summary of the top five organizations and their proportional required resources.
  2. To see the resources required by an organization, in the left pane click Required Resources > by Organization.
    In the table that appears, you can see the resources required for each organization. If you expand an organization, you can also see the required resources for all VDCs in that organization.
  3. To see the resources required by a provider VDC, in the left pane click Required Resources > by Provider VDC.
    In the table that appears, you can see the resources required for each provider VDC. At the top of the page, you can see the combined resource requirements from all provider VDCs.
  4. To see the resources required by each replicated workload, navigate to the replications view.
    1. In the left pane, choose a replication direction.
    2. To see the resources required by the virtual machine replications, under Show details click Resources, while under Grouping VM is selected.
      For all virtual machine replication 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, under Grouping click vApp, while under Show details Resources is selected.
      For all vApp machine replication listed in the table, in the columns for CPUs, Memory, and Disk capacity you can see the resource requirements for each vApp replication.
