You allocate resources to an organization by creating an organization virtual datacenter that is partitioned from a provider virtual datacenter. A single organization can have multiple organization virtual datacenters.

You must have a provider virtual datacenter before you can allocate resources to an organization.


Open the Allocate Resources wizard to start the process of creating an organization virtual datacenter for an organization.


An organization virtual datacenter obtains its compute and storage resources from a provider virtual datacenter. The organization virtual datacenter provides these resources to vApps and virtual machines in the organization.


The allocation model determines how and when the provider virtual datacenter compute and memory resources that you allocate are committed to the organization virtual datacenter.


Configure the allocation model to specify the amount of provider virtual datacenter resources to allocate to the organization virtual datacenter.


An organization virtual datacenter requires storage space for vApps and vApp templates. You can allocate storage from the space available on provider virtual datacenter datastores.


A network pool is a group of undifferentiated networks used to create vApp networks and internal organization virtual datacenter networks.


You configure an edge gateway to provide connectivity to one or more external networks.


Select the external networks that the edge gateway can connect to.


Configure IP settings for external networks on the new edge gateway.


Suballocate into multiple static IP pools the IP pools that the external networks on the edge gateway provide.


Configure the inbound and outbound rate limits for each external network on the edge gateway.


You can create an organization virtual datacenter network that is connected to the new edge gateway.


You can provide a descriptive name and an optional description to indicate the vSphere functions available for your new organization virtual datacenter.


Before you create the organization virtual datacenter, review the settings you entered.

Add a network to the organization.
