vRealize Automation 7.1 is optimized for growing clouds thanks to significant improvements in the automated installation experience. The new unattended installation includes:

  • A new virtual appliance command-line (CLI) tool wrapping all install commands: IaaS Management CLI, IaaS Pre-requisites checker CLI, and Dynamic, context-based help
  • Silent installer that will mimic the steps performed by the UI-based installer
  • Support for multiple deployments without the need to re-enter configuration data


With vRealize Automation 7.1, Cloud Admins are now able to scale out existing vRealize deployment by adding more vRA components and manage them automatically through the new Command Line interface (CLI).Screen Shot 2016-08-26 at 11.40.40 AM

vRealize Automation 7.1 is also equipped with a brand new Migration Wizard, which allows you to perform safe and sound side by side upgrade (migration) existing vRealize Automation systems 6.2.X to the latest and greatest release. During the migration process the source production environment remains intact which guarantees a minimum downtime of the production environment. The Migration Wizard Supports simple and High Availability deployments as well as external or internal Postgres.
