VMware vCloud Director is an ultimate cloud management platform that provides the ability to build secure, multi-tenant clouds by pooling virtual infrastructure resources into virtual datacenters and exposing them to users through Web-based portals and programmatic interfaces as a fully-automated, catalogue-based service.
Our VMware vCloud portal uses the HTML5 user interface for controlling vApps, virtual machines, powerful NSX network services, content libraries and vCloud availability.
Here we give a quick overview of the features and terms. Let´s take a brief introduction about its functions.
Users and Groups
An organization can contain an arbitrary number of users and groups. Permissions within an organization are controlled through the assignment of rights and roles to users and groups.
A right is the fundamental unit of access control in vCloud Director. Each right provides view or manages access to a particular object type in vCloud Director. Each organization can have different rights and roles and assign them to users and groups.
Identify providers – SAML
You can control users and groups from a SAML identity provider and connect vCD to organization active director.
Connect vCD in our vCloud datacenter to manage all resources from one place. Also required if cross vCD networks are needed.
There are also several other options for policies and settings you can customize.
