VMware vCloud Director (vCD) is deployment, automation and management software for virtual infrastructure resources in multi-tenant cloud environments.
VMware vCD enables cloud service providers to convert physical data centers into highly elastic virtual data centers (VDCs). It achieves this by converting physical data center resources, such as network, storage and compute, into VDC resources, which the service provider then makes available as catalog-based services to internal users through a web portal. VCD features policy controls to apply pre-determined limits on users to regulate the consumption of resources and restrict access.
Formerly part of VMware’s vCloud Suite, which also includes vCenter Orchestrator and vCenter Update Manager, vCD is now available only to service provider customers.
One of the key concepts behind VMware vCD is the organization. An organization is a collection of users and groups created by the vCD administrator. The vCD admin assembles an organization and assigns resources to it, which the organization receives from a VDC. The VDC also provides an environment in which virtual systems can be stored, deployed or operated. An organization can receive resources from more than one VDC. There’s also no limit to how many users and groups a single organization can have. Although the vCD admin is responsible for creating an organization and assigning resources to it, an individual organization admin can add new users to his organization at will.
