http://bit.ly/KL9S68 -- This video, narrated by VMware systems engineer, Matthew Carpenter, demonstrates how users can use VMware vFabric Application Director's Command Line Interface (CLI) alongside VMware's cloud stack to support a self-service portal for provisioning cloud applications. As a result, end users will be able to select an application from a catalogue of available applications and request the target application to be deployed. Optionally, administrators can insert an approval workflow to approve the cost or availability of deploying applications for a specific user.

The demonstration makes use of several VMware products, including:
• VMware Service Manager -- Cloud Provisioning (VSM CP)
• VMware vCenter Orchestrator (vCO)
• VMware vFabric Application Director (AppD)
• VMware vCloud Director (vCD)

At a high level, to create this solution, Carpenter demonstrates 7 easy steps:
1. End User orders a service from VSM CP
2. Admin/Manager approves request in VSM CP
3. VSM CP calls to vCO to feed Application Director
4. vCO captures status and updates VSM CP
5. Application Director deploys the app with vCD
6. vCD receives a registered vApp
7. VSM CP notifies the user
