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

You must install a node in every cloud you want to connect and oversee using vCloud Connector. To connect public vClouds, you can either install a node in your organization in the public vCloud or use a multitenant node installed by the service provider.

As vCloud Connector does not require every organization in a vCloud Director cloud to install its own node, public vCloud service providers or administrators of private vCloud Director clouds can install a node in the cloud as a multitenant node for multiple customers to use. See Deploying Multitenant Nodes as a vCloud Service Provider for more information.

To use a multitenant node, you need to get the node URL from the service provider or system administrator. See Use Service Provider Nodes for more information.
