Technical Track - Vmware Lifecycle Manager
Second session of my first day at Vmworld Europe.
Michael Adams and Brian Emerson introduced us to the automatization, management and control of the life of a virtual machine.
The VLM track VMs and report us on various states of VMs get during their existence. With Lifecycle manager you can define policy for creation, deployment, changes and retirement of VMs.
Brian show us a demo of the web access based inteface in which a requester can asks for a VM filling out requirement (OS, type of environment, ACLs, domain,...) and the approver can trigger the creation of the requeted VM.
