In the concluding paragraphs of my last post, UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns: Hello World ,I briefly compared the UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns (UCD+P) use of OpenStack HEAT Templates (HOT) for blueprints with my own simple XML blueprint for vSphere compute resources. In the past week a Fix Pack was released for UCD+P which adds initial support for provisioning to VMware vSphere infrastructure. So in this post I’ll do a “Hello World” -style example of connecting UCD+P to a vCenter 5.5 server, provisioning a VM on it and deploying multiple UrbanCode Deploy (UCD) components to the VM.
Having hooked up UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns (UCDP) to OpenStack and UrbanCode Deploy (UCD), it’s time to take a look at a “HelloWorld”-style example. I’ll work through a single-server UCDP blueprint, deploying a single UCD component to it.
