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 a public or private vCloud Director cloud, you can either install a node in your organization in the cloud or use a multitenant node installed by the service provider or cloud administrator.

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

Note

For information on deploying a multitenant node as a service provider or cloud administrator, see Deploying Multitenant Nodes as a vCloud Service Provider.

To connect a vCloud Air cloud instance, you use the node installed by VMware in vCloud Air. You do not need to install your own node in vCloud Air.
