With vCloud Application Director, application architects can use virtual machine templates and scripts to model an application deployment with middleware services and applications.

With vCloud Application Director 6.0, you can deploy applications on Windows and Linux operating systems in the vCloud Director and vCloud Automation Center cloud environments. For the Amazon EC2 cloud environment, you can only deploy applications on Linux operating systems.

Application architects can use virtual machine templates from a standardized cloud provider library defined for their enterprise.

Application architects can also add application components to the middleware services defined in the application blueprint.
