vSphere Automation for Datacenter Management.
Automating routine tasks ensures accuracy and consistency across the datacenter, saving IT administrators time and effort for more important tasks. Automation is integrated into all aspects of the vSphere platform.
VMware provides an extensive suite of automation tools for both vSphere administrators and software developers building commercial and in-house management solutions. These tools are based on the powerful vSphere APIs and allow you to perform the same functions available from the vSphere Client.
With vSphere Automation You Can...
Automating common virtualization tasks can help you reduce your OPEX and allow your team to focus on strategic projects. Automating the management of your vSphere environment can help increase your VM to administrator ratio.Maintain Consistency and Ensure Compliance
Deploy servers and virtual machines in a structured, repeatable and automated model with script automation, removing the risk of human error.
VMware vSphere PowerCLI is a command line tool that lets you automate all aspects of vSphere management, including network, storage, VM, guest OS and more. PowerCLI is distributed as a Windows PowerShell snapin and includes more than 300 PowerShell cmdlets, plus documentation and samples. With PowerCLI you can also manage your vCloud Director environment and automate your private and hybrid cloud environments.
The VMware vSphere CLI is composed of several command line utilities for automating, managing and configuring vSphere hosts. The vCLI can be installed on both Windows or Linux platforms and is also distributed in a virtual appliance called vMA. Extend any of the default scripts to produce more complex scripts to automate all aspects of your vSphere infrastructure.
VMware vCenter Orchestrator
Easily automate all aspects of your VMware vSphere infrastructure and orchestrate with other in-house and third-party solutions with VMware vCenter Orchestrator. VMware vCenter Orchestrator lets you capture best practices and turn them into automated workflows and create an end-to-end platform for managing your IT infrastructure.
Out-of-the-box workflows help automate existing manual tasks. Use sample workflows from VMware vCenter Orchestrator’s workflow library and create a blueprint for creating additional workflows.
Aggregate storage resources of several datastores into a single pool and simplify storage management at scale. Intelligently place workloads on storage volumes during provisioning based on available storage resources. Perform ongoing load balancing between datastores to ensure space and I/O bottlenecks are avoided as per pre-defined rules that reflect business needs and changing priorities with vSphere Storage DRS.
Manage your storage by providing a better integration between storage and server. vSphere Profile-Driven Storage allows rapid and intelligent provisioning of applications, while ensuring application service levels match the available storage. You'll lower capital and operating expenditures by gaining visibility into your storage pool.
vSphere Auto Deploy
Rapidly provision and patch vSphere hosts by leveraging the network boot capabilities of x86 servers together with the small footprint of the ESXi hypervisor with VMware vSphere Auto Deploy. vSphere Auto Deploy lets you:
- Rapidly deploy large numbers of vSphere hosts quickly and efficiently
- Simplify host patch management
- Support both stateless (diskless) and stateful (disk-backed) host deployments
