The following diagram is a conceptual example of a global entitlement. In this example, NYUser1 is a member of the global entitlement called My Global Pool. My Global Pool provides an entitlement to three floating desktop pools, called pool1, pool2, and pool3. pool1 and pool2 are in a pod called NY Pod in the New York datacenter and pool3 and pool4 are in a pod called LDN Pod in the London datacenter.

A diagram that shows an example of a global entitlement.

Because My Global Pool has a scope policy of ANY, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature looks for desktops across both NY Pod and LDN Pod when NYUser1 requests a desktop. The Cloud Pod Architecture feature does not try to allocate a desktop from pool4 because pool4 is not part of My Global Pool.

If NYUser1 logs into NY Pod, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature allocates a desktop from pool1 or pool2, if a desktop is available. If a desktop is not available in either pool1 or pool2, the Cloud Pod Architecture feature allocates a desktop from pool3.
