Getting More Out of vRealize Automation: Orchestration and Advanced Use Cases

By: Ryan Cartwright, VMware Senior Systems Engineer & Gary Coburn, VMware Staff Systems Engineer

Welcome back from VMworld as we continue on with out Getting More Out of Webinar Series. We had very positive feedback from our completely full LIVE Workshops at VMworld, but have a very exciting new topic to discuss.

On September 21st, we will be hosting a Getting More Out of vRealize Automation webinar called Orchestration and Advanced Use Cases.
Have you started or are you planning to start your journey to an automated provisioning and management process? Have you tackled the advanced orchestration with vRealize Automation yet? As you venture down this journey there are always systems of record, or systems of configuration, or perhaps monitoring that all need to be integrated. How do you go about connecting all of these dots?


What to Expect?

What if you could have pristine templates and only orchestrate the agents needed? This can expand much further than just agents but is the ideal way to show the power of advanced orchestration.

In this session, we will illustrate using a sample workflow how to provision agents for vRealize Automation software components. Building on top of that we’ll execute a configuration management tool during provision, and finally offer an orchestration of that agent through a day two operation.

Event Broker

As you may recall, vRealize Automation 7.0 has a new Event Broker System (EBS) that helps IT administrators to extend out-of-the-box lifecycle management workflows and integrate with existing systems. We will dig a little bit deeper into some use cases of the event broker and lifecycle extensibility.

Additional Info

We have a wide array of resources that are available to help provide you additional background details on orchestration and advanced use cases.

In case you want more background on vRealize Orchestrator, be sure to check out our Introduction to Orchestrator recorded session and blog. There are also two very popular vRealize Automation 7 sessions that were recorded on March 2nd called Extending and Customizing vRA 7 Workflows and on March 16th called Application Authoring and Deployment. Please find some time to review these as well if you did not catch them in March.
