You can create an organization virtual data center from a virtual data center template that your system administrator has created.


This operation requires the rights included in the predefined Organization Administrator role or a role that has rights to view and instantiate organization virtual data center templates.


  1. From the main menu (), select Libraries, and select VDC Templates from the left panel.
    The list of virtual data center templates displays in a grid view.
  2. Select a template, and click New VDC.
  3. Enter a name of the virtual data center and, optionally, a description.
  4. Click Create.


The creation of the new organization virtual data center is instantiated and might take a few minutes. You can see the progress of the task in the Recent Tasks panel.

What to do next

You can manage your newly created organization virtual data center by creating virtual machines, vApps, managing the network and security settings, and so on.
