You can create a vRealize Automation reservation to allocate provisioning resources in the fabric group to a specific business group.

For example, you can use reservations to specify that a share of the memory, CPU, networking, and storage resources of a single compute resource belongs to a particular business group or that certain machines be allocated to a specific business group.

Note:

Note: Storage and memory that are assigned to a provisioned machine by a reservation are released when the machine to which they are assigned is deleted in vRealize Automation by the Destroy action. The storage and memory are not released if the machine is deleted on the vCenter Server.

You can create a reservation for the following machine types:

  • vSphere

  • vCloud Air

  • vCloud Director

  • Amazon

  • Hyper-V

  • KVM

  • OpenStack

  • SCVMM

  • XenServer
