How to Utilize Leaseweb’s VMware vCloud
Leaseweb VMware vCloud key features
The vCloud Director tenant UI serves as the perfect tool for managing your virtual data center. The web-based UI gives you the ability to interact with and manage all your workloads via a graphical interface, allowing you to create virtual machines, group them into vApps, create networks and manage them, all within the VMware Cloud Director panel. Simple and easy.
Powered by VMware, Managed by Leaseweb
VMware is a global leader in cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology, equipped to support your virtual resources with a cutting-edge roadmap. Leaseweb’s experts manage, patch and upgrade the underlying physical hardware, external network components, day-to-day data center operations and provide continuous support so you can focus on what truly matters — the core of your business.
Public and Private Connections
Public network connections are possible through vCloud’s Edge Gateway which provides routing to an external network and controls the north-south traffic. The Edge Gateway allows you to create routed networks and assignment of public IPs to resources within the virtual data center. It can also include services such as firewall, DHCP, NAT, routing, load balancer and VPNs.
vCloud offers the ability to create isolated internal networks with private IP addresses, enabling local connectivity between VMs within the same virtual data center. This means you can properly isolate sensitive workloads, such as your database services from operations focused on user engagement, or those directly exposed to users. This separation is achieved by situating them on distinct internal networks, ensuring enhanced security and isolation.
vApp Templates and Rapid Provisioning
With vApp templates, you can create pre-configured bundles of virtual machines and applications, streamlining the process of deploying new environments. This feature gives you the benefit of accelerating the time-to-market for applications, by enabling rapid provisioning and reducing manual configuration efforts.
Firewall and Advanced Load Balancer
Leaseweb VMware vCloud customers are offered, by default, a Firewall and Load Balancer both configured to guarantee high availability. These are included in the monthly pricing and can be upgraded whenever you need.

Why Leaseweb’s VMware vCloud The Best Choice
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the Leaseweb VMware vCloud and the Leaseweb VMware vSphere offerings?
vSphere is a single-tenant deployment in which a Leaseweb customer has dedicated private cloud resources exclusive to them, providing enhanced security and customization options, but it has a relatively higher price point for smaller setups. vCloud is our multi-tenant offering with which multiple virtual data centers are provisioned on the same cloud platform, hence offering cost-effectiveness.
What are templates in vCloud Cloud Director?
In VMware vCloud Director, templates are preconfigured virtual machine images that serve as the basis for creating new virtual machines. Templates allow you to quickly deploy standardized virtual machines with preinstalled operating systems, software configurations, and applications.
What storage options are available with Leaseweb VMware vCloud?
Leaseweb vCloud is designed to provide full SSD storage systems for high performance workloads as well as SATA storage for low demanding tasks, such as backup or private template catalogs.
Is VPN access allowed on vCloud deployments?
vCloud’s NSX edge-gateway feature includes a site-to-site IPsec VPN solution that allows you to connect from an external environment. SSL VPN connections for remote users are also possible.
Can I migrate my existing VMware workloads from on-premises/cloud deployments to Leaseweb’s vCloud?
You can migrate virtual machines and supported workloads by exporting them as OVF files from your existing VMware environment and importing them into your vCloud data center on Leaseweb.
How can I upgrade or downgrade resources in my vCloud tenant?
