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.

  • The 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 virtual or physical Windows machines and appear largely under the Infrastructure tab on the console.

  • A Microsoft SQL Server database, which is deployed during IaaS installation.
