What is a VMware vCloud Organisation? September 3, 2012Posted by vbry21 in VCP5-IaaS.
In vCloud Director we have a concept of Organisations and an Organisation is composed of the following components.
- VMware vSphere vApps, which are composed of one or more virtual machines that communicate over networks and use resources and services.
- Users and Groups, which define the users and groups that belong to an organisation.
- Organisation virtual datacenters (vDC), which is a collection of virtual resources that are assigned to an organisation by the system administrator. An organisation can have multiple organisation vDCs.
- Catalogues, which is a container for these components, vApp templates and media files (floppy disks and ISO images
For vCloud an organisation is a logical group of users to which IT services will be presented. Organisations provide a security boundary, so appropriate resources and controls can be setup for a given group of users.
