Cloud Account Types
Cloud accounts are the configured permissions that vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly uses to collect data from the regions or data centers, and to deploy cloud templates to those regions. Resource information such as network and security, compute, storage, and tags content is data-collected from your cloud accounts. The collected data includes the regions that you later associate with cloud zones .
You can configure a VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) as a cloud account within vRealize Automation Cloud Assembly to use workload domains. As a cloud administrator, you can create a VMware Cloud on AWS cloud account for account regions to which your team will deploy vRealize Automation cloud templates.
