VMware has released a plug-in which allows orchestration of vCloud Director, VMware’s management platform for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds from vCenter Orchestrator 4.1 released in August last year, a development and process-automation platform that provides a library of extensible workflows to manage the VMware vCenter infrastructure and other technologies.
The plug-in can be used by:
- Tenants to automate catalogs and vApp provisioning and decommissioning operations within their organization.
- Service providers to automate the configuration and management of the tenant organizations, their virtual data centers and their resources.
- Service providers to automate the addition and carve up of new Virtual Infrastructure resources such as Provider vDC, External networks and network pools.
The plug-in contains 91 standard workflows, but also custom workflows can be created from 158 actions available.
