VMware vCenter™ Orchestrator is a development- and process-automation platform that provides a library of extensible workflows. By using the workflow library you can create and run automated, configurable processes to manage the vSphere infrastructure as well as other VMware and third-party technologies.

Orchestrator exposes every operation in the vCenter Server API and so that you can integrate all of these operations into your own automated processes.

If you have a running vCenter Orchestrator server, and you have configured it to work with the vCenter Server instances registered with your vSphere Web Client, you can use the vSphere Web Client to run and schedule workflows on the objects in your vSphere infrastructure.
