vCAT Workflow Examples

Version 4

    The vCloud Architecture Toolkit 3 (vCAT) features a section for “Tools & Add-ons.” Within that section are Workflow Examples, Software Tools, and Cloud Bursting. This document provides access to the Workflow Examples referenced in the vCAT. The file linked below provides the vCenter Orchestrator packages that contain those workflows. These are provided as a reference and starting point for your vCloud Automation and Software Defined Datacenter projects.


    Prerequisites for using the workflow examples are documented in the Workflow Examples section of vCAT.  See each workflow example in the document for its specific requirements. The packages were designed and tested using vCO 5.1, vSphere 5.1, and vCloud Director 5.1. These files should not be installed on prior versions. Additionally, they require the updated plug-in for vCloud Director 5.1.
