Hello GC members
1. I'm trying to figure out how VMT gives Intelligent workload placement decisions. Say, I define my workload as 1 vCPU, 8 GB vRAM and 500 GB Secondary storage, is there any API which can take these parameters and output me the Data Center?
2. As far I see from the VMT REST API's I need to define this workload as a template and then create a deployment profile and so on, upfront. Only then I could request the optimal datacenter where I can place this workload. Is this right?
3. Finally, If above (point #2) is right, the workload could be changing, ex: another user might request 2 vCPU, 8GB RAM and 500GB. In this case, the workload differ slightly. Should another template be defined upfront?
4. My mind says that I need to create a template dynamically based on workload and then ask VMT for the IWP decision by supplying UUID of the newly created template. Is this right?
Please suggest. I just started exploring VMT and above IWP decision making is my primary use case.
