A vRealize Automation installation includes installing and configuring single sign-on (SSO) capabilities, the user interface portal, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) components.

An installation consists of the following components.

  • VMware vCloud Automation Center Appliance, which deploys the vCloud Automation Center console (the user interface portal), and manages Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities for authorization and authentication.

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) components, which are installed on a Windows machine (virtual or physical), and appear largely under the Infrastructure tab on the console.

  • An SQL Server Database, which can be installed as part of IaaS or separately.
