The VMware Ready vCenter Orchestrator Plug-in Program offers a comprehensive set of tools and resources to help vendors develop and certify vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins for their products. VMware vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins extend the vCenter Orchestrator workflow engine with new object types and methods that automate repeatable tasks across VMware and partner technologies. This provides customers with rich integration and automation technology that lower the initial acquisition and ongoing operating costs of joint solutions. vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins provide a competitive edge to the vendor that develops and distributes them.
Use of the VMware Ready logo in association with vCenter Orchestrator plug-ins signifies that the vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In has met VMware standards defined in the VMware Ready vCenter Orchestrator Plug-in Program Guide. A copy of the guide may be obtained by contacting email@example.com.
