How to Automate: vCO
The Right Tool for the job?
In my opinion a workflow tool is the right tool for the job when you are automating processes. Because that’s exactly what these tools were build for. When you are automating a vSphere or vCloud environment it makes perfect sense to learn and use vCO. On the other hand, if you’re trying to just get a table of VMs with the number of vCPU and RAM size you might want to consider using PowerCLI. But if you’re running that script every day it makes sense to call it from a workflow which send it to you by e-mail and then schedule the workflow for a daily run.
