CSM provides a holistic view of all your public cloud accounts that you have connected with NSX Cloud by presenting your public cloud inventory in different ways:

  • You can view the number of regions you are operating in.

  • You can view the number of workload VMs per private network.

There are four tabs under Clouds.
