Updated the supported Cisco UCS Central release
vRealize Orchestrator is a development and process-automation platform that provides a library of extensible workflows. These workflows allow you to create and run automated, configurable processes to manage the VMware vSphere infrastructure. The vRealize Orchestrator uses its open plug-in architecture to allow you to integrate with other management and administration solutions.
The Cisco UCS Central plug-in for vRealize Orchestrator leverages the open plug-in architecture of the vRealize Orchestrator to integrate the Orchestrator with UCS Central. After integration, the plug-in enables you to create actions and workflows for managing both UCS and vSphere infrastructure in the datacenter.
