vCenter Servers

To connect to vCenter, you can create a vCenter server logical point on the OnApp side. This option will allow you to add each cluster from the vCenter side as a compute resource on the OnApp side separately. 

You can import vCenter server at Admin > Settings > vCenter Servers > Actions button > Import from vCenter.

When your vCenter server is imported, you will see all of your networks and data stores being imported and placed in separate zones.  After that, you will be able to create compute resources using clusters that have been imported with the vCenter server. With this feature, you will be able to create your VS now based on the compute resource (cluster) and Resource Pool that you select on VS creation wizard. It brings more logic and comfort to your user experience.


You can also set up billing for each cluster separately in the corresponding bucket by specifying the necessary compute zone in the Limits for compute zones section
