Charges Apply

Disk space consumption charges do apply for catalog items in your Org Catalog.


Since templates consume disk space, your Organization must have enough space allocated for the addition of your new template.

You can check your current disk space allocation usage by:

  1. Select Administration > Cloud Resources > Virtual Datacenters
  2. Right-click your vDC name and select Properties
  3. Select the Storage tab
  4. Review the Allocation Used value and verify your current consumption


If your template is not successful due to disk space allocation, please contact your Voonami Account Manager to discuss your options.
