How best to give access to virtualization resources ????
Posted on 2014-12-18
I have a new virtual test environment that consists of multiple physical servers connected to an Equallogic SAN. The servers are a mix of Hyper-V 2012 R2, VMware 5.5 and we may be adding Citrix XenServer as well. I need to be able to allow half of the resources (compute, storage, etc) to be used by Group A and the other half by Group B. Ideally each group would be able to use a self-service console or portal to create and manage their virtual machines and only have access to the resources granted to them. A bonus would be some kind of over provisioning option. Eg. Group A has maxed out their allowed 50% of resources and Group B is only using 5%. In that case Group A could use more than 50% of the resources as long as Group B is not using them.
I'm thinking Microsoft Virtual Manager 2012 R2 can possibly do what I need, but I'm not sure.
Any advice/suggestions you can provide are appreciated.
