VConnect is a centralized virtual machine management platform that enables a way to integrate VMware VCenter with Azure Stack to have a unified cloud experience
It integrates VMware vCenter with Azure Stack and enables the administrator to define quotas, pricing profiles with different plans for the tenants/end-users and to get usage and billing data.
How to create quotas via VConnect in the Azure Stack:
Once the connections are created and configured in the Azure stack plan and offer, it will be added to the quotas and allows the admin to restrict the total number of VMs, VM cores, Memory and Storage sets by a tenant while creating VMs in the subscription.
Tenant operations such as creating, deleting and re-configuring a VM, etc. can also be configured.
VConnect - Tenant Portal:
A tenant can create a VM from the tenant portal by clicking New-> Compute and select the template defined by the admin in the quotas.
After selecting the template, the tenant must fill in the following details: VM name, VM size, etc. to create a virtual machine.
All the created VMs can see under the VConnect Virtual Machine extension in the tenant portal.
The Size of the VM, IP address, Power and configuration status can see from the overview of a virtual machine.
Different power operations such as power off, shutdown, reboot, suspend a VM, reset and put a VM on standby can be performed from the overview blade.
Console View of the selected virtual machine can see under the VM console extension.
Tenants can reconfigure the vCPU Core and RAM of the created Virtual Machine.
Tenants can create an additional disk from the existing VM, and it can be expanded or deleted without the intervention of the admin.
