After you sign in, click the Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand tile for vCloud Air (formerly known as vCloud Hybrid Service).


You can set a region as the default region or you can select a region each time you sign in. To switch from one region to another, select another region in the drop-down menu at the top of the page after you sign in.

Click Continue and an instance (Virtual Data Center - VDC1) is created with a default gateway and a routed network. This process usually takes about 2-3 minutes. After the instance is created, you can create your first virtual machine as described in Create Your First Virtual Machine.


The virtual data center default size is 50 GHz vCPU, 100 GB RAM, and 2 TB Storage (Standard or SSD-Accelerated). You can create up to 50 virtual machines per virtual data center.
