A Provider Virtual Data Center (PvDC) combines the compute and memory resources of a single vCenter Server resource pool with the storage resources of one or more data stores connected to that resource pool. You can create multiple provider vDCs for users in different geographic locations or business units, or for users with different performance requirements. A PvDC is used as the source for Organization vDCs.
