VMware released the vCenter Orchestrator Plug-in for vCloud Director

At February 25 VMware released vCenter Orchestrator Plug-in for vCloud Director as a free download.

The information below is taken from an excellent article on vCenter Orchestrator Plug-in for vCloud Director at vcoteam.info

This is a plug-in for vCenter Orchestrator allowing to orchestrate vCloud Director (and not the other way around, vCD 1.01 does not have the ability to start an external process).

In terms of functionality the plug-in allows:

  • Tenants to automate catalogs and vApp provisioning and decommissioning operations within their organization.
  • Service providers to automate the configuration and management of the tenant organizations, their virtual data centers and their resources.
  • Service providers to automate the addition and carve up of new Virtual Infrastructure resources such as Provider vDC, External networks and network pools.

By combining its use with the vCO built in vCenter plug-in it is possible to make your vCenter Virtual Infrastructure agile by morphing itself for allocating more or less capacity for vCloud Director provider resources.
