vRealize Automation Code Stream™ is continuous integration and continuous delivery (CICD) software that delivers software rapidly and reliably, with little overhead. vRealize Automation Code Stream supports deploying monolithic legacy applications, and uses Docker containers and Kubernetes containers running on multiple clouds.

With vRealize Automation Code Stream, you create pipelines that automate your entire DevOps lifecycle while using existing development tools such as Git and Jenkins.

An example pipeline builds your code on Jenkins, deploys it to Kubernetes, and includes stages and tasks for development and deployment.

vRealize Automation Code Stream simplifies the ability to build, test, and deploy your applications, and increases your productivity as you release source code from the development repository, through testing, to production. vRealize Automation Code Stream supports custom and commercial applications, and objects such as VMware Cloud Templates.

Starting with vRealize Automation 8.2, Blueprints are called VMware Cloud Templates.
