vRealize Automation 7.0: Simplified Configuration Process
You’ll notice improvements right away, as the installation wizard greatly reduces the time it takes to get things up and running. With the minimal deployment option, you can be up and running 6 times faster than with previous deployments. The helpful guide allows you to configure your system precisely the first time for the type of deployment that you want. The simplified architecture, including authentication and Single Sign-On, in vRealize Automation 7.0 bring ease to this process, enabling you to begin provisioning services in a fraction of the time this used to take.
Unified Service Blueprint and Design Canvas
vRealize Automation 7.0 boasts a new unified service blueprint and design canvas. Component services like compute infrastructure, networks, security and software can be intuitively assembled with a simple move of your mouse.
Network and Security
Dynamically configure NSX logical services to meet the needs of each application by using the same drag-and-drop interface. This greatly simplifies the process of designing application workloads with appropriate network connectivity, security, availability, scale and performance. This also eliminates the need for networking to be provisioned as a separate activity outside of vRealize Automation 7.0.
Blueprint as Code
Additionally, service blueprints can be edited as text files to facilitate DevOps deployments. The ability to export and import blueprints as code improves version control and sharing of policies across Realize Automation instances and tenants.
vRealize Automation 7.0 also features enhanced extensibility, to simplify and expand the ability to invoke external tools and integrate with existing systems. We have added a new Event Broker that simplifies and standardizes the process by which 3rd party solutions integrate with vRealize Automation. This helps ensure that the solution can be easily upgraded. We have also improved the API experience for users that prefer to access capabilities of vRealize Automation via an API. And finally, expanded hybrid cloud support means users get the best of both public and private cloud, including AWS and vCloud Air Government Clouds.
vRealize Automation 7.0 accelerates business to save you time and money.

Great article, Colby. Curious – is there a standard ‘orchestration language’ (like Heat, CF, TOSCA, etc) that vRA is using to describe the “blueprints as code”?
The blueprints are in yaml format.
My understanding is that TOSCA will be used to describe the “blueprints as code”
