To provision blueprints from a specific vRealize Automation deployment to multiple remote offices and branch offices, you define the additional locations in vRealize Automation and associate the blueprints with those locations.
Add Data Center Locations to the Compute Resource Menu You can configure new data center locations and resources in the Compute Resource menu of the vRealize Automation deployment selection screen, allowing you to more easily select new compute resources for deployment. To add a new location to the Compute Resource menu, you edit an XML file on the vRealize Automation server.
Associate Compute Resources with a Location in ROBO Each data center location has its own compute resources, which you associate with that site for its dedicated use.
Add a Property Group and a Property Definition for Data Center Location in ROBO Property definitions let you more easily control which location to deploy a blueprint, and based upon that choice, which storage and network resources to use with that blueprint.
Create a Reservation Policy for the Unified Blueprint in ROBO When tenant administrators and business group managers create a blueprint, the option to add a reservation policy become available. To add a reservation policy to an existing blueprint, edit the blueprint.
Specify Reservation Information for the Unified Blueprint in ROBO Each reservation is configured for a specific business group to grant them access to request specific physical machines.
Create Unified Single Machine Blueprints in ROBO A blueprint is the complete specification for a virtual, cloud, or physical machine. Blueprints determine a machine's attributes, the manner in which it is provisioned, and its policy and management settings. Create three blueprints from which to clone the virtual machine for your environment using pre-configured resources on the vCenter Server compute cluster in both Region A and the Remote Office/Branch Office. Tenants use these blueprints to automatically provision virtual machines.
Test the Cross-Region Deployment of the Single Machine Blueprints in ROBO The data center environment is now ready for the multi-site deployment of virtual machines using vRealize Automation. Test your environment and confirm the successful provisioning of virtual machines using the blueprints you created to both Region A and ROBO.
