Provider class

The Provider class represents a component or system that implements a CloudClass. For example, Resource Manager is a provider for the ComputeContainer class and BMC Server Automation is a provider for the VirtualCluster and VirtualServer classes, but there might be other providers for those classes. A Provider is a specific instance. If multiple servers exist in the infrastructure, then multiple Provider objects exist, one for each instance.
