5.2.1 Administrative Organization
A common design guideline is to create an administrative organization to provide a sandbox for system administrators and maintain a master catalog of vApp templates published to all other organizations in the vCloud environment. Users in an organization typically consume resources by deploying vApps from a predefined catalog. The master catalog provides a global library of standardized vApp templates to promote reusability of common assets built to provider standards.
Administrators assigned to the administrative organization are responsible for creating standardized gold master vApp templates for inclusion in the master catalog. Place non-finalized vApps in a non-published internal catalog.
Configure the administrative organization to allow catalog publishing. Create a Pay As You Go organization virtual datacenter to minimize the amount of resources reserved.
