At the location level, you can limit resources and set defaults. This means you can set an allocation limit for an enterprise in each datacenter or public cloud region.

To configure the same limits for all regions in a provider, select a provider group. For example, if you enter a hard limit of 8 CPUs, then the platform will create a hard limit of 8 CPUs in each region for this provider. This option is available when regions are grouped by provider or vCloud endpoint. See Group public cloud regions by provider or endpoint

To limit resources in a datacenter or public cloud region, set allocation limits:

  1. Go to Users → edit Enterprise → Allowed Datacenters
  2. Select an Allowed Datacenter (datacenter or public cloud region) 
  3. Click the pencil Edit button. An edit dialog will open at the Allocation limits tab
  4. Set valid allocation limits

This is process is very similar to that of setting enterprise limits.

Total amount of RAM that may be used by VMs including hardware profiles assigned to VMs

Virtual CPUs


Total number of virtual CPU cores that may be used by VMs including hardware profiles assigned to VMs

Local Hard Disk


Total size of hard disk that may be used by VMs on hypervisor datastores and in public cloud providers

External Storage


Total size of external storage that may be created for assignment to VMs



Total number of private VLANs that may be defined. Note that a private VLAN is automatically created for every VDC, so this limit may restrict the number of VDCs that users can create.

Public IPs


Total number of Public IPs, floating IPs (in public cloud), and NAT IPs that may be used
