Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Dedicated Resources: Dedicate Pods, Clusters, Hosts to a domain
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 07:17:46 GMT
Hi Anthony,

My thinking is that, when dedicating a cluster to a domain, dedication of primary storage
will be taken care of.

Current proposal is to have dedicated resources at domain level. 
In case of accounts, we have to handle number of use cases which might be confusing.

Regards
Deepti

How about primary storage?  Can PS be dedicated to a domain?

Can an account have dedicated resource?

If this happens, how does admin handle this?
Can admin extend resource for this domain?
