You are the administrator of a vSphere-based virtual data center. You want to run test workloads for one of your engineering departments in a public cloud while keeping production workloads in your on-premise data center. However, you want to manage the test virtual machines from the same user interface that you use to manage your on-premise virtual machines.

You purchase resources in the vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud service. Then you install the vCloud Air vSphere Client Plug-in in vSphere Web Client. This allows you to use the vSphere Web Client to manage both your on-premise virtual machines and your test machines in vCloud Air.
