By using VMware Marketplace, you can select and deploy solutions in VMware Cloud Director virtual data centers (VDCs). Let us say that you want to use WordPress to create a blog and start using it right away. As a VMware Marketplace user, your first step is to select a pre-packaged solution and subscribe to it. By subscribing to a solution, you configure it for deployment on your target platform, which in this case, is a VMware Cloud Director VDC. In this scenario, as a VMware Cloud Director user, you deploy a Bitnami WordPress solution as a vApp in your VDC and start using it to create your blog.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you have an active VMware Marketplace account.
  • Verify that you can access a VDC that is associated with your VMware Cloud Director organization account.
