vCloud Application Director includes predefined components, such as services, in its catalog that are reusable components in several applications. These services are available to all user groups in vCloud Application Director. Logical templates must be added for each group outside the Default group.

On the vCloud Application Director title bar, click the drop-down menu and select Catalog > Services to view the available sample services. The Catalog menu also includes standard logical templates, tasks, operating systems, tags, policies and external services.

An application architect can create an application blueprint and add the sample services to the applicable nodes and configure them. The sample services can also be configured when deploying a predefined application.

In the application blueprint, these sample services are grouped into Application Servers, Database Servers, Web Servers, Windows Services, Monitoring, and Other.

For recommended property configurations, supported operation systems, and application components information, see the VMware vCloud Application Director Catalog Services guide .


Use the predefined sample catalog services only in a test environment.
