VMware has launched an extension to its vCloud line that the company claims will integrate the cloud platform with its other offerings more effectively.
The company said the vCloud Integration Manager would offer enterprises and service providers an automated platform for the delivery of cloud services and applications.
The Integration Manager tool, which is designed to integrate with vCloud Director, will help to tie in the cloud deployments with the vSphere, vShield and vCenter platforms.
In doing so, the company believes that the tool will help companies better manage and provision virtualised systems for web applications and services.
"Until now that involved wrangling manual processes, diverting scarce development resources onto writing glue code and portals, or choosing to implement complex and expensive third-party systems," said VMware senior director of cloud services Matthew Lodge.
"With VMware vCloud Integration Manager, providers of VMware vCloud services will have the tools they need to automatically provision services, enable reseller partners and speed customer on-boarding."
The release is part of a larger effort by VMware to advance its vCloud brand.
The company made the cloud platform a major focus of its recent VMworld conference.
VMware said it now has more than 90 firms signed up to the vCloud Powered certification, which requires service providers to offer integrated vCloud deployments with Open Virtualisation Format (OVF) requirements.
