      They are responsible for user and group management, tenant branding and notifications, and business policies such as approvals and entitlements. They also track resource usage by all users within the tenant and initiate reclamation requests for virtual machines.
    2. IaaS administrators – IaaS administrators manage cloud, virtual, networking, and storage infrastructure at the system level, creating and managing endpoints and credentials, and monitoring IaaS logs. IaaS administrators organize infrastructure into tenant-level fabric groups, appointing the fabric administrators who are responsible for allocating resources within each tenant through reservations and reservation, storage, and networking policies.
