This procedure describes how to set up vRealize Automation Cloud to work with a Google Cloud VMware Solution self-service hybrid cloud environment so that you can use vRealize Automation Cloudworkloads within this environment.

vRealize Automation Cloud supports connections with Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE) to move and run VMware workloads on Google Cloud. GCVE was created by Google to support interface with VMware environments.

Use of GCVE is well documented by Google. You can find the documentation here:

To use GCVE with vRealize Automation Cloud, you must set up both vCenter and NSX-T cloud accounts in vRealize Automation Cloud. See the following documentation for setting up these cloud accounts:

Note: You must deploy a cloud proxy on the GCVE SDDC to support the vCenter and NSX-T cloud accounts. See Setting up cloud accounts in Cloud Assembly that require a cloud proxy for more information.

The following procedure outlines the high level steps to configure your environment so that you can deploy vRealize Automation Cloud workloads on GCVE.

  1. Install and configure Google Cloud VMware Engine based on the vendor instructions as appropriate for your environment.
  2. Create vCenter and NSX-T cloud accounts within your vRealize Automation Cloud deployment.
