If you want to ensure
that a user group or customer organization does not exceed specific compute,
network, or storage resource thresholds, you can add resource limits to the
user group that apply across all vDCs assigned to that group. If you use
resource limits, even if one or more vDCs assigned to the user group have
Cisco UCS Director
will reject service requests that exceed the resource limits.
For example, if you
have a data center that includes the following resources:
ESXi cluster with
that total 1,000 GHz
with all the required network portgroups, IP subnets, and VLANs
of 100 datastores
User groups for
Finance, Sales, and Development
for the Finance user group of 300GHz compute and 20 datastores.
assigned to the Finance user group, each with 100 GHz compute and 10 datastores
With this configuration, users in the Finance group can log into the End User Portal and view their available resource limits, the vDCs that are associated with their user group, and other information about their available resources, and deployed applications. If they have deployed applications across all 20 datastores in their resource limits, they cannot make any further service requests without first requesting an additional resource allocation.
As you can see from the following illustration, the combination of user
groups, vDCs, policies, and resource limits determine the boundaries of the
compute, network, and storage infrastructure that is available to each of the
Finance and Sales organizations for application provisioning.
