DEVOPS FOR IT - v2.0 ! vRCS Management Pack New Package Types.

DEVOPS FOR IT - v2.0 !

The latest version of the Codestream Management Pack (version 2.0) - DevOps for IT has been released. We have many new package type's added (17 actually) in this release.

VMware vRealizeTM Code Stream Management Pack for IT DevOps is an extensible framework that automates the management of software-defined content. This management pack makes it possible to dispense with the time-consuming and error-prone manual processes currently required to manage software-defined content.

This solution is based on VMware’s concept of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). The SDDC abstracts every service in the data center from its underlying hardware and redefines services as software. By treating software-defined content as code, you can apply current software development methodologies such as agile or DevOps to the configurations and content within the SDDC.

The management pack uses vRealize Code Stream to facilitate "DevOps for Infrastructure." The management pack is intended for organizations that have an enterprise deployment of vRealize Automation, which includes multiple environments such as development, testing, staging, and production.
