Abiquo 4.0 introduces support for vCloud Director as a public cloud provider. Abiquo works with vCloud “Organizations” as Abiquo public cloud regions.

For a list of features, see vCloud Director features table

Adding vCloud Director to Abiquo

Before you add vCloud Director to Abiquo, you must register a Cloud Provider Proxy remote service so Abiquo can use it to retrieve the organization.

When creating a public cloud region, enter organization administrator credentials to retrieve the organization. The identity is in the format user@org. Later, you will need to edit the Abiquo enterprise credentials, select vCloud Director and enter the identity and credential again to work with the region.

Abiquo imports and synchronizes VDCs and networks

In this initial version, Abiquo imports and synchronizes virtual datacenters and networks from a vCloud Director organization. But you cannot use Abiquo to create virtual datacenters or networks in vCloud Director. In the initial version, direct external networks are displayed as private networks.

Users create firewalls and load balancers

The vCloud Director integration enables the user to create firewall policies and load balancer policies with vCloud Director. The firewalls support TCP and UDP protocols, and with a source or destination that can be an IP, a range of IPs, or “internal”. In this initial version, Abiquo users can create load balancers on internal networks. 

Users deploy virtual machines

Users can deploy virtual machines using templates from the vCloud catalog. In contrast to other public cloud providers that work with hardware profiles, vCloud Director templates have CPU and RAM values, but the user cannot edit these values in the virtual machine.

When adding IPs to a virtual machine, the user can identify networks in Abiquo by (question).

When Abiquo creates virtual machines in vCloud Director, and it creates a vCloud virtual appliance for each virtual machine.
