You allocate resources to an organization by creating an organization vDC that is partitioned from a provider vDC. A single organization can have multiple organization vDCs.

You must have a provider vDC before you can allocate resources to an organization.

1

Open the Allocate Resources wizard to start the process of creating an organization vDC for an organization.

2

An organization vDC obtains its compute and storage resources from a provider vDC. The organization vDC provides these resources to vApps and virtual machines in the organization.

3

The allocation model determines how and when the provider vDC compute and memory resources that you allocate are committed to the organization vDC.

4

Configure the allocation model to specify the amount of provider vDC resources to allocate to the organization vDC.

5

An organization vDC requires storage space for vApps and vApp templates. You can allocate storage from the space available on provider vDC datastores.

6

A network pool is a group of undifferentiated networks used to create vApp networks and internal organization vDC networks.

7

You configure an edge gateway to provide connectivity to one or more external networks.

8

Select the external networks that the edge gateway can connect to.

9

Configure IP settings for external networks on the new edge gateway.

10

Suballocate into multiple static IP pools the IP pools that the external networks on the edge gateway provide.

11

Configure the inbound and outbound rate limits for each external network on the edge gateway.

12

You can create an organization vDC network that is connected to the new edge gateway.

13

You can provide a descriptive name and an optional description to indicate the vSphere functions available for your new organization vDC.

14

Before you create the organization vDC, review the settings you entered.

Add a network to the organization.
