While virtualisation enabled IT to provision applications in minutes instead of days, the more complex process of provisioning and configuring the necessary infrastructure still takes considerable time, effort, and manual coordination.

This session details how these problems can be addressed by leveraging new APIs in vSphere and vCloud Director. These APIs allow tight integration with your application delivery controller, and unify the deployment and configuration of applications and their network services. Service templates can be defined and assigned to applications based on characteristics, business requirements, and SLAs.
Much of the complex, error-prone, and time-consuming work previously required to deploy production applications can now be automated. This significantly improves IT’s agility and efficiency.
