How many workflows and actions are included with vCO 5.5.1 GA?

This page was generated using a workflow to access the REST API of a freshly deployed VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) 5.5.1 GA Virtual Appliance. The results indicate a total of:
394 Workflows and 388 Actions. Please note that for each Plug-in you install, additional Library Workflows and Actions will be available. I've provided a handy link page for the plug-ins that I'm aware of here on this blog.. as noted on that page, the official repository where VMware and Partners should be submitting their plug-ins is the VMware Solution Exchange. Adding plug-ins to your vCO server will provide you many more library workflows and actions to work with. As an example, take a look at this post where I have taken a clean vCO 5.5.1 server and added all of the VMware produced plug-ins that have been released officially or as Flings.

NUC Lab Kit

Below are my thoughts for a vSAN nuc lab. Since I already have cables, not including them here. I ordered (and received by Nov 30, 2016)
3 x nuc, 3 x 32GB Crucial mem, 3 x Toshiba NVMe drive, 3 x Startech USB to GB NIC, and 3 x Crucial 1TB SSD. I've also been very happy with my Cisco SG300-10 so I bought one more since my existing one only has one port available. Each of the items listed here are linked below - all were purchased using the provided links below.
single NIC (See this post for details on using the USB -> GB NIC item listed below

I stayed with the i5 for the power consumption and form factor vs. the i7 Skull Canyon ;)
