VMware vCloud adapter
The TrueSight Orchestration application adapter for VMware vCloud provides the interface between the workflow processes and VMware vCloud software. The application adapter for VMware vCloud contains an actor adapter, a monitor adapter, and an adapter module, which comprise workflow processes that perform the standard operations available through the VMware vCloud API.
The actor adapter executes operations on VMware vCloud by using the VMware vCloud application programming interface (API).
The VMware vCloud API enables you to provide and consume virtual resources in a cloud computing environment. The vCloud API is based on the Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture, which enables you to create and modify the state of an object that is accessible at a URL.
