Introduction to the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Multi-Node Plug-In
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Multi-Node Plug-In allows organizations to manage environments with multiple vCenter Orchestrator server instances.
As organizations increase their level of automation, they often find the need to deploy multiple Orchestrator instances. With the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Multi-Node Plug-In, administrators have a more efficient way to manage multiple Orchestrator instances from a central point. The plug-in allows administrators to log in to a master Orchestrator server to view the inventories and workflows of remote Orchestrator servers, and to trigger workflows remotely.
The Multi-Node plug-in also makes it easier for administrators to manage workflow packages. From a single Orchestrator server, administrators can push packages to one or more remote Orchestrator servers and ensure that all instances are in sync with the same workflow versions.
The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Multi-Node Plug-In 5.1 release runs on VMware vCenter Orchestrator 5.1. For instructions about installing and configuring the plug-in, see Using the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Multi-Node Plug-In 1.0.x.
