Ayehu eyeShare IT process automation is a powerful workflow solution designed to automate IT tasks across physical, virtual and cloud-based systems through a simple drag-and-drop workflow designer.
With the VMware vSphere integration, administrators can automate complex tasks in VMware vSphere, enabling full management of your virtualized computing infrastructure. Use the pre-packaged templates, or design your own workflow processes using the built-in actions in the eyeShare workflow designer.

VMware vSphere Templates:
|Virtual Machine Provisioning||This workflow template allows you to provision a VM based on a pre-defined VM profile. You can trigger this workflow from an email or ticket request from your SD tool.|
|Automate VMware snapshot||This template reads a list of servers from an Excel file, and creates a snapshot for each VM. It is very useful, for instance, before a maintenance procedure or a mass software installation.|
|Delete old snapshots||This template retrieves a list of virtual machines, while deleting snapshots older than 30 days on each machine. It can be used to maintain your virtual environment on a regular basis.|
|Delete specific snapshot on a list of virtual machines||This template reads a list of servers from an Excel file, and deletes a specific snapshot on each machine. This workflow can be used, for example, to delete a snapshot that was taken before an upgrade across your virtual environment.|
|Power on list of virtual machines||This template reads a list of servers from an Excel file and powers on each server. When the procedure is complete, it waits 5 minutes and confirms that all servers are up. In the event that a numberof them are still down, it will send an alert to an admin by email. This workflow is a great way to power on your environment after a maintenance procedure that requires shutdown.|
