Application Tiers with vC Ops Custom UI


  1. Hi, Excellent tips. If I have many customers, and every of them have different VMs hosting in my environment, I could use this to group my graphics per customer view (folders), so I could report the state of VMs separately, right?. It's posible to make each customer's admin to see just the view of their VMs, via web, configuring roles and permissions? I don't know if you understand what I want to do.

    1. If your tenants are all sharing the same resources, giving them visibility into part of the environment would only be confusing and could create problems for you when they see resource contention. If each of your customers was in a different cluster, then this approach might be a good one for you. One thing to note, a couple of vCenter permissions are added when vC Ops is installed, but even users with limited scope in vCenter will still see the entire environment in the Operations and Planning environment view, just the VM names will be filtered out.
