Well VMware have finally released the long awaited successor to vFabric Application Director v5.2 and they have aptly renamed it to vCloud Application Director v6.0. This new release comes with a whole host of new possibilities for scripting using vCenter Orchestrator as it has an all new and expanded API which offers so much more functionality than its predecessor. As such I felt that it deserved not only a single blog post but a whole series of blog posts dedicated to using vCenter Orchestrator to automate vCloud Application Director v6.0.
