EMC released a Compute as a Service white paper documenting design considerations leveraging vCenter Orchestrator and its vCloud Director, AMQP and REST plug-in
With these components EMC created a workflow running the following operations:
- Provision storage from EMC Symmetrix VMAX or EMC VNX based on the vCenter High Availability cluster.
- Create the datastore.
- Create the provider virtual datacenter.
- Create the organization virtual datacenter within the provider virtual datacenter.
- Create the catalog on the organization datacenter
The whitepaper shows the workflow design, a simple custom web portal to start it and the workflow execution record.
