vCloud Automation Center provides powerful capabilities for policy-based orchestration of complex infrastructure and application deployments. A Platform as a Service (PaaS) such as Pivotal CF, built on the open-source Cloud Foundry, presents a set of abstractions and capabilities that focus on the application implementation and the run-time services it will leverage.
The value of a PaaS installation is equally driven by the set of application-centric capabilities provided, such as performance monitoring or logging, and by the set of services that can easily be integrated into an application; exposing the offerings in the vCloud Automation Center services catalog for leverage by apps deployed into Pivotal CF allows an enterprise faster time to value. And a vCloud Automation Center user can model system deployments, automating infrastructure provisioning and software deployments; this modeling is equally valuable even when the targets of the orchestrations are the PaaS abstractions of applications and services.
These products are very complementary and we’ll show you how. Understand how the combined vCloud Automation Center / Pivotal CF solutions provide the basis for a comprehensive PaaS solution. See a demo of and roadmap for the integrated solution. Learn how to use vCloud Automation Center to model applications for deployment into Pivotal CF and how to draw vCloud Automation Center services into Pivotal CF.
After a brief overview of both products, we will describe the capabilities and derived value of the joint solution that will have early access availability at the time of the conference.
