In this post we will look at how and why we would use Advanced Workload Placement using allocation-based capacity metrics. In doing this we will review the basics of workload placement and Demand vs Allocation capacity metrics, look how to enable Advanced Workload Placement in VMware Aria Automation and how we can configure Advanced Workload Placement in Aria Operations to use allocation rather than demand-based metrics.

From version 8.6, VMware Aria Automation (formerly vRealize Automation) introduced the capability to add a VMware Cloud Director (VCD) Organization as a Cloud Account. In this post, we will look at how we can use the Aria Automation (AA) Infrastructure as a Service API to configure a VMware Cloud Director Cloud Account without the need for the UI.

In this post, we will look at how we can use the VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) API to configure the Global Environment and install the VMware Identity Manager (VIDM) cluster. The Global Environment is required to install vRealize Automation and provides a Single Sign-On (SSO) Solution for the vRealize Suite.

In this post, we will look at how we can use the VMware vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager (vRSLCM) API to configure the Global Environment and install a single VMware Identity Manager (VIDM) Appliance. The Global Environment is required to install vRealize Automation and also provides a Single Sign-On (SSO) Solution for the vRealize Suite.
