You can manage and consume your hybrid cloud resources through the vCloud Air Web console. Your vCloud Director organization administrator can use the vCloud Director application programming interface (API).

Customers have access to vCloud Air to manage cloud resources purchased from VMware.

The vCloud Air console is the primary portal for access, consumption, and management of cloud resources purchased from VMware, including virtual data center management, configuration of network services, and virtual machine instance lifecycle management. The console also provides single sign-on access to the vCloud Director portal. In vCloud Director, administrators can perform advanced management of virtual data centers, and end users can perform advanced management of virtual machines.

VMware provides limited vCloud Director organization access to the API for programmatic resource management or workload migration.
