Cloud Assembly provides an automation service where your development teams can iteratively develop and deploy VMware cloud templates to designated cloud vendors.

What does Cloud Assembly do.

The primary purpose of Cloud Assembly is to create cloud templates, and then deploy the templates.

As a Cloud Assembly administrator, generally referred to as a cloud administrator, you configure the infrastructure to support template development and deployment. The infrastructure begins with cloud vendors, then you add Cloud Assembly users as project members and link them to the cloud account regions as projects. At this point, you can continue to develop templates, or you can turn over development to the project administrators and members.

As a project member, use Cloud Assembly as you iteratively develop and deploy templates, until you have a production-worthy product. The deployment locations are configured by your cloud administrator as part of the infrastructure. The administrator has the best understanding of your organizations resources and budget.
