With a flexible VMware Aria Automation-based feature set, the Cloud Consumption Interface (CCI) enables DevOps users to work with vSphere namespaces and associated services to deliver simple, self-service consumption of Kubernetes and cloud infrastructure resources for VMware Cloud environments.

CCI exposes Supervisor IaaS services across the vSphere infrastructure and aggregates them into a common endpoint that can be accessed through a graphical web console, the CCI plug-in CLI, or the IaaS API for self-service access across vSphere-based cloud. Cloud Consumption Interface between Aria Automation and vSphere cloud

As a user, you can create Supervisor Namespaces that consume supervisor IaaS services such as the VM service and the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Service.

After creating the namespace, UI workflows guide you through the process of creating virtual machines, TKG Clusters, and other resources. As you work through the creation wizards, CCI automatically generates corresponding Kubernetes YAML files that you can download locally. These Kubernetes YAML files can also be used to provision similar IaaS resources using the kubectl CCI plug-in command line.
