The reference table below summarizes how different vCloud Director Org VDC allocation types consume vSphere resources. In other words: how a choice of allocation model for a particular Org VDC and its parameters (allocation, guarantees, quota, vCPU speed) translate to resource pool and VM resource settings (CPU/RAM) – reservations and limits.
- valid for vCloud Director 9.5 and older (down to 5.5)
- RP … resource pool
- Elastic … Org VDC can be divided across multiple RPs across clusters
- Although there are currently only three Org VDC allocation types the Allocation Pool can be elastic or non-elastic based on vCloud Director instance wide setting in General Settings
