Organization vDCs page in the vCloud view

An Organization Virtual Data Center (Org vDC) provides resources to an organization and is partitioned from a Provider Virtual Data Center (PvDC). Organization vDCs provide an environment where virtual systems can be stored, deployed, and operated. They also provide storage for virtual media, such as floppy disks and CD ROMs. A single organization can have multiple OrgvDCs.

To access this page, in the TrueSight console, select Capacity > Views > Cloud > vCloud and click the Organization vDCs tab.
