What is a VMware vCloud Organisation? September 3, 2012

Posted 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.
