Content libraries are containers for VM templates, vApp templates, and other resources used for the vRealize Automation deployment of virtual machines and vApps. Sharing templates and files across multiple vCenter Server instances brings out consistency, compliance, efficiency, and automation in deploying workloads at scale.

You create and manage a content library from a single vCenter Server instance, but you can share the library items with other vCenter Server instances if the HTTP(S) traffic is allowed between them.
