A user in the Organization Administrator or Organization User role interacts with the VMware Data Services Manager User Console to view details of their data service deployments, and to perform various management tasks on these databases.


The VMware Data Services Manager User Console is available only to users in the Organization Administrator and Organization User roles. The same views and operations are available to both roles, but the scope of the information that displays differs:

  • A user in the Organization User role has the privileges required to view and manage only the objects that they own.
  • A user in the Organization Administrator role has the privileges required to view and manage all objects owned by the Organization.

About the Dashboard

The Dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of important VMware Data Services Manager metrics for you (Organization User) or for your organization (Organization Administrator):

  • The number and type of provisioned databases.
  • The storage allocated to the databasess associated with the Organization User and Organization Administrator across environments.
  • The storage allocated on local and cloud storage.
  • The currently available disk capacity across environments.
  • The number of local and cloud backups.
