In this article

    Short Description

    Creates VMware hardware plans.

    Applies to

    Platform: VMware

    Product Edition: Standard, Enterprise, Enterprise Plus, Veeam Universal License

    Requires a VCP license.

    Syntax

    Add-VBRViCloudHardwarePlan -Name <string> -Server <Object> -Datastore <VBRViCloudHardwarePlanDatastore[]> [-Description <string>] [-CPU <int>] [-UnlimitedCPU] [-Memory <int>] [-UnlimitedMemory] [-NumberOfNetWithInternet <int>] [-NumberOfNetWithoutInternet <int>]  [<CommonParameters>]

    Detailed Description

    This cmdlet creates a new hardware plan for VMware environments.

    The hardware plan allocates the following resources to a tenant:

    • Cloud host. When creating replicas, the tenant will use this host as target host to register the replicated VMs.
    • Quota of the cloud host CPU and memory.
    • [Pre-configure] Networks to which the tenant will connect the cloud replicas. Run New-VBRCloudVLANConfiguration to pre-configure the pool of VLANs.
    • [Pre-configure] Cloud storage: a quota of datastores allocated to tenants. Run New-VBRViCloudHWPlanDatastore to create the cloud storage.

    True

    Named

    False

    False

    Description

    Specifies the description of the hardware plan.

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    Server

    Specifies the ESXi host or cluster. The resources of this host or cluster (CPU and memory quotas) will be allocated to the tenant by the hardware plan.

    True

    Named

    False

    False

    CPU

    Specifies the quota of CPU resources you want to allocate to the tenant under this hardware plan (MHz).

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    Memory

    Specifies the quota of CPU memory you want to allocate to the tenant under this hardware plan (Gb).

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    UnlimitedCPU

    Indicates that the quota of CPU resources is unlimited.

    With unlimited CPU quota, the tenant will be able to use all CPU resources of the host.

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    UnlimitedMemory

    Indicates that the quota of CPU memory is unlimited.

    With unlimited memory quota, the tenant will be able to use all memory resources of the host.

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    Specifies the number of networks with access to the Internet that you want to allocate to the tenant under this hardware plan.

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    NumberOfNetWithoutInternet

    Specifies the number of networks without access to the Internet that you want to allocate to the tenant under this hardware plan.

    False

    Named

    False

    False

    Datastore

    Specifies the array of cloud storage objects. The hardware plan will use these objects to allocate storage space to the tenant under this hardware plan.

    Accepts the VBRViCloudHardwarePlanDatastore type.

    True

    This cmdlet supports Microsoft PowerShell common parameters. For more information on common parameters, see the About CommonParameters section of Microsoft Docs.

    Return Type

    VBRViCloudHardwarePlan

    Example

    This example shows how to create a hardware plan with the following settings:

    • CPU quota: 4000 MHz
    • Memory quota: 2000 Gb
    • Cloud storage: "Cloud Replicas"
    • Networks without access to the Internet: 1

    To create the hardware plan:

    1. Pre-configure networks without access to the Internet. For details, see New-VBRCloudVLANConfiguration.
    2. Pre-configure the cloud storage. For details, see New-VBRViCloudHWPlanDatastore. Save the storage to the $cloudreplicas variable.
    3. Run Get-VBRServer to get the host whose resources will be exposed to the user by the hardware plan. Save the server to the $server variable.
    4. Run Add-VBRViCloudHardwarePlan to create the hardware plan. Use the saved variables.

    $server = Get-VBRServer –Type ESXi -Name "ESXiHost"

    Add-VBRViCloudHardwarePlan -Name "VMware Silver" -Description "VMware Hardware Plan" -Server $server -CPU 4000 -Memory 2000 -NumberOfNetWithoutInternet 1 -Datastore $cloudreplicas
