VMware Cloud Automation
VMware’s cloud automation services are a set of cloud services that leverage the vRealize Automation on-premises offering. These services make it easy and efficient for developers to build and deploy applications.
The cloud automation services consist of VMware Cloud Assembly, VMware Service Broker, and VMware Code Stream. Together, these services are said to streamline application delivery, enable cloud flexibility and choice, and control risks. Additionally, these services facilitate collaboration between traditionally siloed groups helping further accelerate business innovation.
