Virtual Datacenter (VDC) gives all business customers a fast and scalable package for computing-as-a-service products. These service products allow customers to select, allocate and move computing resources when and where they are needed.
Each VDC service delivers a share of the fully equipped servers, storage and applications from BENESTRA Data Centers as Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS).
BENESTRA engineers manage the BENESTRA VDC service up to the infrastructure layer – so you don’t have to worry about monitoring, maintenance or upgrades. The service is accessed through the intuitive Graphic User Interface(GUI) that allows you to manage your virtual machines including moving or adding on-demand resources.

Organizations - an organization is a unit of administration for a collection of users, groups, and computing resources. Users authenticate at the organization level, supplying credentials established by an organization administrator when the user was created or imported.
Users and Groups - an organization can contain an arbitrary number of users and groups. Users can be created locally by the organization administrator or imported from a directory service such as LDAP. Groups must be imported from the directory service. Permissions within an organization are controlled through the assignment of rights and roles to users and groups.
Virtual Datacenters - an organization virtual datacenter (vDC) provides resources to an organization. vDCs provide an environment in which virtual systems can be stored, deployed, and operated. They also provide storage for virtual media, such as floppy disks and CD ROMs. An organization can have multiple vDCs.
Organization Networks - an organization network is contained within a vCloud Director organization and is available to all the vApps in the organization. An organization network allows vApps within an organization to communicate with each other. An organization network can be connected to an external network or isolated and internal to the organization. Only system administrators can create organization networks, but organization administrators can manage organization networks, including the network services they provide.
vApp Networks - avApp network is contained within a vApp and allows virtual machines in the vApp to communicate with each other. You can connect a vApp network to an organization network to allow the vApp to communicate with other vApps inside and outside the organization as long as the organization network is connected to an external network.
Catalogs - Organizations use catalogs to store vApp templates and media files. The members of an organization that have access to a catalog can use the catalog’s vApp templates and media files to create their own vApps. Organization administrators can copy items from public catalogs to their organization catalog.
