The ZenPacks.zenoss.vCloud ZenPack monitors virtual infrastructure services that are managed by VMware vCloud Suite platforms.
VMware vCloud acts as a cloud layer on top of one or more vSphere virtual infrastructures. It allows for easy deployment of public or private clouds with required concepts, such as a self-service portal with built-in multi-tenancy. vCloud enables you to allocate your vSphere resources as desired to provide abstracted compute (CPU and memory) and storage resources to internal or external customers.
You can find more information about cloud computing and vCloud at the VMware site:
This ZenPack uses VMware's Cloud Director native management API to extend in-depth availability and performance monitoring into the vCloud platform. If you provide the vCloud service, you can use the vCloud administrator perspective to gain a complete view of the entire cloud architecture. Or, as a vCloud consumer, you can use the user perspective to obtain organization-specific information.
