If you’re always trying to keep up with the best practices in the industry – and like most professionals, are trying to be more effective in your role – this webinar is for you.  In this session, you will hear from two experts on best practices that can enable you to do more with vRealize. 

Get an overview into various use-cases of VRA and how you can integrate the Pure Storage FlashArray with VMware vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) and vRealize Automation (vRA). vRO is VMware’s orchestration tool that provides plugins and various APIs to control and manage any part of your infrastructure. vRA offers a self-service provisioning web interface that enables customers to build and customize their own multi-tenant private cloud with minimal effort. vRA leverages workflows inside vRO to provide “Anything-as-a-Service” (XaaS) in order to provide self-service, with as granular role-based-access control and allocations limits as desired with any part of your infrastructure.
