VMware vRealize Automation for RPC-VMware#
VMware vRealize® Automation™ is a cloud automation product that can be included as an optional component in Rackspace Private Cloud powered by VMware (RPC-VMware). It can be used to provide cloud-based services on demand via self-service consumer catalogs. These services can include typical data-center operations, such as deploying virtual machines (VMs), applications, and infrastructure, as well as anything for which you can build a workflow in vRealize Orchestrator.
Without vRealize Automation, the private cloud might offer a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC), but it would lack cloud automation. With vRealize Automation, you can enable consumers, who have no vSphere knowledge, to deploy and manage applications and associated VMs and infrastructure via easy-to-use wizards. You can treat these consumers as a single tenant or as multiple tenants corresponding to your organization’s business units or customers.
