Introduction to the VMware vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In for vCloud Automation Center

The VMware vCenter Orchestrator vCloud Automation Center plug-in allows organizations to automate operations on vCloud Automation Center model entities. The plug-in provides access and can control any vCloud Automation Center system. You can use the plug-in to integrate your existing business logic and models with an arbitrary vCloud Automation Center server. You can add a vCloud Automation Center as a policy-based, declarative multi-hypervisor, provisioning functionality to an existing top level service catalog portal. In addition, you can use the vCloud Automation Center plug-in policies to decide, where to place a workload when a scale out is needed based on bad performance triggered by vCenter Operations.

The vCloud Automation Center plug-in enables workflow designers to include create, read, update, and delete operations for an arbitrary vCloud Automation Center model entity in any entity set. In addition, the plug-in provides the capability to dynamically connect to a vCloud Automation Center system and provision a virtual machine from a vCloud Automation Center blueprint.

The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In for vCloud Automation Center 5.1 release runs on VMware vCenter Orchestrator 5.1. For instructions about installing and configuring the plug-in, see Using the vCenter Orchestrator Plug-In for vCloud Automation Center 5.1.
