The Resource Pod provides the runtime environment for the network functions. The section covers the logical tenancy and networking components.


In VMware Integrated OpenStack, cloud administrators manage permissions through user, group, and project definitions. Projects in OpenStack are equal to tenants in Telco Cloud Infrastructure. A project is the administrative container where telco workloads are deployed and managed.

Tenant VDCs

A Tenant VDC allows creation of virtual data centers for tenants under different compute nodes that offer specific SLA levels for each telco workload. While quotas on projects set limits on the OpenStack resources, Tenant VDCs allow providing resource guarantees for tenants and avoid noisy neighbor scenarios in a multitenant environment.


One or more VMs that are deployed in the tenancy to provide specific network functions or telco services.
