In vCloud Connector, you can start multiple tasks at the same time. By default, vCloud Connector executes a maximum of 10 concurrent tasks per vCloud Connector node, that is, per cloud. If you specify more than 10 tasks, the first 10 tasks are executed concurrently. When a task finishes, the next one in the queue is executed.

You can increase the maximum number of concurrent tasks for a vCloud Connector node.

If you increase the maximum number of concurrent tasks, you should also increase the storage allocated to the node accordingly. The amount of extra storage you need depends upon the size of the resources you intend to transfer. About 50 GB is recommended for each added task.

As most tasks, such as a copy task, involve both a source cloud and a destination cloud, the maximum number applies to both. If you increase the maximum so that you can execute more than 10 copies at a time, for example, increase the storage for the node in both the source and destination cloud.
