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.

  • vRealize Automation appliance, which deploys the management console, manages Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities for authorization and authentication, and includes an instance of vRealize Orchestrator.

  • 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 MS SQL Server Database, which is deployed during the IaaS installation.
