At last! As announced at VMworld Europe, VMware vRealize Automation 7.2 has finally arrived!
The key updates/features for this release are:
- Native integration for Microsoft Azure adding to the already supported endpoints of vSphere, KVM, Hyper-V, AWS, OpenStack, vCD and vCloudAir)
- Native integration with ServiceNow and their Service Catalog
- Container Management
This makes this version of VMware vRealize Automation the first one that could be called a true broker of Hybrid Clouds.
Ironically (as I pointed out to @virtualjad at VMworld Europe) the native Azure endpoint is the first to be migrated away from the legacy Microsoft .NET code which is hopefully a sign of good things in the future.
