Chapter 1. Configuring and Maintaining vCloud Director

A VMware vCloud combines a vCloud Director server group with the vSphere platform. When you install one or more vCloud Director software instances, they create a vCloud Director server group by connecting the servers to a shared database as well as the shared NFS storage directory and integrating the vCloud Director server group with a vSphere platform. vCloud Director (vCD) is web server appliance. So, when you install vCloud Director on one or more servers, you can form a vCloud Director server group and this group can be balanced behind a load balancer. Each vCloud Director is referred to as a cell. Multiple cells form a vCloud Director server group, which leverages a single database.
