VMware vRA 8 Configuration Workflow

This post was originally published on this site

Cloud Account – Cloud accounts allow you to bring your public cloud and on-prem data centers under management. This is like Endpoint (In vRA 7.x)

Cloud Zone – Cloud zones associate compute resources with projects and account/regions to form the basis of deployable virtual machines. In addition, they enable you to define capabilities that Cloud Assembly matches with blueprint constraints to define where and how resources are configured for deployments. This is like Fabric Group (In vRA 7.x)

Project – Projects link users and cloud zones. Think of projects as groups that control who can use what cloud resources. This is like Business Group (In vRA 7.x)

Flavor Mapping – Cloud vendors use flavors, or instance types, to express standard deployment sizings such as small (1 CPU,2 GB RAM) or large (2 CPU, 8 GB RAM) for compute resources. When you build a blueprint, you pick a flavor that fits your needs. This is like Component Profile (In vRA 7.x)

Image Mapping – Cloud vendors use images to configure a VM based on OS settings, such as an ubuntu-16 configuration. When you build a blueprint, you pick an image that fits your needs. Map an image name to a value for each account/region. You can also add constraints and configuration scripts to further control resource placement. This is also like Component Profile (In vRA 7.x)

Blueprint – Blueprints are specifications for the resources that you deploy.
