As an administrator, you can manage storage allocated for your virtual data centers.

Specifying tiers (SSD-Accelerated, Standard, or both) and the amount of storage to allocate to each tier controls how users can allocate storage for the virtual machines in the virtual data center. When users create virtual machines in the virtual data center, they can add can disks from the designated storage tiers based on the amounts allocated for the tiers.

Verify that you have virtual infrastructure administrator privileges.
