You can update a cloud's credentials or delete the cloud altogether from your vCloud Connector.

vCloud Connector can display basic information about a template, virtual machine. or vApp.

You can use vCC to stop, start, suspend, or reset a virtual machine in a cloud that has been added to vCloud Connector.

If your vCloud Connector oversees a large number of templates and virtual machines, you can search for specific instances by name.

You can open the console of a virtual machine in a cloud that has been added to vCloud Connector.
