Abiquo virtual infrastructure is organized at three main levels: virtual datacenters, virtual appliances and VMs, with some of the default functionality as described in this section.

Virtual datacenter level

Tenant administrators can manage virtual datacenters that are logical groups of compute, network and storage resources, for example:

  • Restrict users to selected VDCs
  • Limit resources for a VDC
  • Assign a default network
  • Create private networks
  • Purchase public IPs
  • Manage firewalls and load balancers
  • Manage volumes and persistent VMs

Virtual appliance level

Users can manage virtual appliances that are folders (logical groups) of VMs or containers, for example:

  • Deploy
  • Manage VM anti-affinity layers
  • View monitoring for VMs
  • Control VMs
    • View monitoring
    • Manage alerts
    • Create action plans (including horizontal autoscaling)

VM level

Users can manage VMs, for example:

  • Create and deploy VMs or Docker containers
  • Obtain VDC resources on a self-service basis and configure compute, network and storage for their VMs
