You can install vCloud Connector Nodes in vSphere or vCloud Director clouds.

You must install a vCloud Connector Node in every cloud you want to connect and oversee using vCloud Connector.

vCloud Connector does not require every organization in a vCloud Director cloud to install its own vCloud Connector Node in the cloud. If you are a public vCloud service provider hosting many organizations, you can choose to install one Node in the cloud and make it available to multiple organizations. Similarly, if you have a private vCloud Director cloud with many organizations, you can install one Node that will be used by multiple organizations.

If you are a user of a service provider's public vCloud or of a private vCloud that already has a vCloud Connector Node installed, you need to get the Node URL from your service provider or system administrator. You then register the Node with your vCloud Connector Server using the Node URL and your own Organization credentials.

You can install a vCloud Connector Node in vSphere 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, or 5.1.

You install a vCloud Connector Node in each vCloud Director 1.5 cloud you want to connect to and use with vCloud Connector.

You install a vCloud Connector Node in each vCloud Director 5.1 cloud you want to connect to and use with vCloud Connector.
