Introduction to the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Elastic Service Plug-In
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Elastic Service plug-in provides a self-scaling virtual datacenter, by automatically balancing the physical resource between virtual datacenters in VMware vCloud environment. The Elastic Service plug-in helps administrators to monitor virtual datacenter resource usage. The plug-in also automates tasks such as adding physical resource to a virtual datacenter, and removing the spared physical resource from the virtual datacenter.
The Elastic Service plug-in introduces a rule engine to analyze resource usage metrics and make decisions. Administrators can use the predefined workflows to modify the rules in the rule engine. The Elastic Service plug-in can communicate with the AMQP plug-in to forward the resource outage information to a message broker, and other third-party software.
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Elastic Service Plug-In 1.0 release runs on VMware vCenter Orchestrator 5.1. For instructions about installing and configuring the plug-in, see Using the vCenter Orchestrator Elastic Service Plug-In 1.0.
