You can view a Dedicated Cloud or Virtual Private Cloud instance to see summary information about the cloud and browse its inventory.

Summary information includes the geographic region to which the cloud belongs, the number of available IP addresses, and the amount of used and free resources. You can also follow the links to manage the cloud instance in either the vCloud Air portal or in vCloud Director.

You can browse the cloud instance to see all its virtual data centers, virtual machines, templates, gateways, and networks. Detailed information is available at each level. For example, for virtual data centers, you can view the resource consumption, the virtual machine quota, whether the data center is locked or unlocked, and the objects it contains. For a virtual machine, you can view information such as its power state, the vApp and the virtual data center to which it belongs, its guest operating system, and its network settings.
