Thanks for the update!

This requires a new instance of LCM correct? There isn't a support pack we can install on an existing LCM (2.1.0 Patch 2) in order to deploy this?

Thank you for a well written facts about vRA 8.0.
Very helpful indeed.

Do you know if vRO is/will split from the standalone version? 

Personally I think it's abit strange they call it vRA, when it's a completely different product and not backward compatible.
But I'm guessing that vmware marketing department will rename it when they reach their next "let's rename everthing and confuse all our customers" meeting... 🙂

There is a slightly modified version of vRO for vRA Cloud and vRA 8 that "understands" this new application change, but that's about it.
