I'm just getting started with Synaptic CaaS, and I have many virtual appliances and vm's running on various VMware environments and stored as .ovf and .vmx files. To setup a new Instance in your cloud, the options appear to be only to build a new OS install with a short list of Enterprise-class OS's (Win 2003/2008, RHEL & Suse). How can I upload some of my existing VMware VM's and OVF appliances to your cloud?

Thanks for your post!
Are you working with our vcloud director? I know that customers that have implemented vcloud director on their side will be able to make a template of their custom image and then import it into CaaS.

Thanks for writing back. I'm not working with VMware vCloud Director. Is that the only way to move a VMware VM onto CaaS? If it is, could you point me to instructions on how to use vCloud Director to place a VM on CaaS? I thought that there would be a simple upload image function where I could place a .vmx or .ovf into an instance.

Thanks for responding. I was able to setup vCloud Connector and a private cloud, and now I'd like to move a VM from my private cloud into the Synaptic Caas. However, to link vCloud Connector to Caas, I need to register Synaptic CaaS in vCC. What are the values for the following info:
- IP-Address or FQDN to register
- Type (it can be VMWare vCenter Server, or, VMWare vCloud Director)

I reached out to our Synaptic group and they suggested the best way to get your questions answer would be to send in a support request via the online form at https://www.synaptic.att.com/clouduser/contact_us.
If you are having issues with this suggested route, please let me know.

Just found out that this information is now available via the Portal as well, so customers no longer have to send in a request via the webform for this info.
Once you log into the Portal
-- Click on Service Management
-- On the bottom left you will see a link for "Open vCloud API", click on this link
-- Once you click on this link you will see a pop-up that shows you your OrgURL and the info you need to setup your vCC Node
