Create an organization virtual data center to allocate resources to an organization. An organization virtual datacenter is partitioned from a provider virtual data center. A single organization can have multiple organization virtual data centers.
You must have a provider virtual data center before you can allocate resources to an organization.
Note: To create a flex organization virtual data center, you can use the
vCloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal or the vCloud API. See
vCloud Director Service Provider Admin Portal Guide vCloud API Programming Guide for Service Providers.
Open the New Organization Virtual Datacenter Wizard Open the New Organization virtual datacenter wizard to start the process of creating an organization virtual datacenter.
Select an Organization for the Organization Virtual Datacenter You can create an organization virtual datacenter to provide resources to any organization in the vCloud Director system. An organization can have more than one organization virtual datacenter.
Select a Provider Virtual Datacenter An organization virtual datacenter obtains its compute and storage resources from a provider virtual datacenter. The organization virtual datacenter provides these resources to vApps and virtual machines in the organization.
Select an Allocation Model The allocation model determines how and when the provider virtual datacenter compute and memory resources that you allocate are committed to the organization virtual datacenter.
Configure the Allocation Model Configure the allocation model to specify the amount of provider virtual datacenter resources to allocate to the organization virtual datacenter.
Allocate Storage An organization virtual datacenter requires storage space for vApps and vApp templates. You can allocate storage from the space available on provider virtual datacenter datastores.
Network Pool and Services A network pool is a group of undifferentiated networks used to create vApp networks and internal organization virtual datacenter networks.
Configure an Edge Gateway You configure an edge gateway to provide connectivity to one or more external networks.
Configure External Networks Select the external networks that the edge gateway can connect to.
Configure IP Settings on a New Edge Gateway Configure IP settings for external networks on the new edge gateway.
Suballocate IP Pools on a New Edge Gateway Suballocate into multiple static IP pools the IP pools that the external networks on the edge gateway provide.
Configure Rate Limits on a New Edge Gateway Configure the inbound and outbound rate limits for each external network on the edge gateway.
Create an Organization Virtual Datacenter Network You can create an organization virtual datacenter network that is connected to the new edge gateway.
Name the Organization Virtual Datacenter You can provide a descriptive name and an optional description to indicate the vSphere functions available for your new organization virtual datacenter.
Confirm Settings and Create the Organization Virtual Datacenter Before you create the organization virtual datacenter, review the settings you entered.
