Creating a new VMware Replication Tenant in VSPC
This page covers how to create a new VMware tenant in the Veeam Service Provider Console

Overview

Partners have access to create new VMware Replication Tenants via the Veeam Service Provider Console (VSPC) and place certain restrictions around what they can/can't replicate and how much storage they can consume.
The replication storage is bulk allocated to the Partners VSPC account, from there they can carve up the storage as needed however the storage IS NOT shared between VMware and Hyper-V replication tenants.
All VMware Replications are replicated into our vCloud environment to provide partners with baremetal access and control to allow for the ease of failover/testing at anytime.

Prerequisites/Requirements

Before you can create a new VMware Tenant in the VSPC you need to ensure you have the below:
  • Have access to your VSPC account
  • and have ordered Replication Storage - VMware from our Partner Portal for your new Tenant
If you do not do the second option above you will not be able to provision your VMware Replication Tenant as both the Hardware Plan and the vCloud vDC will not exist.
The hardware plans for VMware also cannot be carved up, you will need to order a new set of Replication storage for each customer to avoid one customer consuming the storage intended for another.
