You prepare vRealize Automation to support the service blueprints that you provide to your users in the service catalog. The service blueprints can range from a single, simple machine with no guest operating system to complex custom application stacks delivered on multiple machine under a load balancer.

Depending on the service blueprints that you provide, the preparation might include configuring your environment for integration with vRealize Automation, and ensuring that your tenants and resources can support your environment.

You then use vRealize Automation to design and publish the service blueprints that meet the needs of your service catalog users.
