    Hello,
    to me, the only surprising number is :
    Type: vApps per organization Limit: 500
    compared to 10000 VMs per vCD for example.
    500 vApps is a small number for a large corporation.
    It somehow forces to use many “organization” which is not an obvious option for private cloud deployments.
    What do you think?

      That is exactly correct. Just because it is a private cloud, doesnt mean that you have to have one large organisation. Think of organisations as multi-tenant boundaries from a private cloud perspective.

    Is there a formula for computing the maximum number of VMs that are managed by a single vCenter in a vCD 1.5 environment?

    Out of curiosity, what is the source of this info? I can’t seem to find it in a KB

      There has not been a KB released yet. This information is sourced internally. Expect a config maximums document for vCloud Director to be released soon.
